About the Author
"Inspired by Filipino folklore and legends, this is an exciting quest full of heart...A captivating tale of family, love, loss, and magic." --Kirkus
"Like Alice stumbling down the rabbit hole, Marikit has memorable adventures that help her find her place in the world. A perfect read-alike for fans of Grace Lin's Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (2009) and Erin Entrada Kelly's Lalani of the Distant Sea (2019)." --Booklist
