About this book
"Half a Loaf" is literally a "half person" and he is a boy who was born with one eye, one ear, one arm and one leg. Because of his weird appearance, Half a Loaf is ostracized, but he always has an upright and free spirit with courage. One day, he caught a tiger up and a greedy old man who was living at the next door wanted to make a bet of old man's daughter. Even though he won the bet, the greedy old man did not keep the promise. However, strong and smart "Half a Loaf" could not give up the old man's daughter and he squeezed wisdom in order to marry with the old man's daughter. Half a Loaf's great tolerance of his plight and his efforts to do what he can do will inspire a lot of children. Also, children can see beautiful illustrations based on Korean traditional folk paintings.
