Описание

Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher, Mr. Stedman, drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. When spring break begins at last, Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend, Peyton. Xander's father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior that pops out of a peach pit.

Little does either boy know that the comic is a warning that they are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives. To win at this deadly serious game they will have to rely on their wits, courage, faith, and especially, each other. Maybe Xander should have listened to Mr. Stedman about the weather after all.

    Narrated by Chris Patton. This is a fantasy adventure twist on the Momotaro/Peach Boy story of Japanese folklore. Xander is a bit of an underachiever although he's talented at drawing. He's of mixed heritage with a Japanese father and white mother. The mother left the family when Xander was young. Strange things begin happening to Xander, culminating in a huge wave that wipes out California and carries his father away. It is then that Xander learns from his Obachan that he is a Momotaro. He must step up to conquer demons and save his father. There's plenty of action for adventure-loving readers but I found the escapade dragging out a tad too long. Patton's voice is youthful and fitting for Xander, a boy struggling to find and keep up his courage.

    The last few days before break, Xander has some strange experiences with his drawings, a school bully, and video games. When his house is attacked and his father taken, Xander discovers he is a Momotaro and has to use this skill to fight the Oni whom his family has been battling (unsuccessfully) for generations. A comic that he drew holds secrets to the group who will help him on his quest - a monkey, pheasant and dog. A little campy, but fun.
