About this book
From the times immemorial, folk tales and stories have delighted children everywhere. Children are most happy when they are listening to stories into sleep, and living the stories in their dreams. Sometimes the stories make them feel happy, sometimes sad, weak or strong, scared or brave, but mostly the stories make them grow. Children who read lots of stories can learn how to behave, what is more important, how to dream, how to make their dreams come true, and how to sympathize with others.

Here in these 20 most wonderful stories, you will meet the long-time friends of Korean children. A rabbit who outwits a tiger, a brother and a sister who became the Sun and the Moon, ogres and their magic clubs, a tortoise and a hare who are totally different from the ones in Aesop's fable, rats who want the Sun to become their son-in-law, and many many more beloved characters.

Such stories as these, while appealing to children everywhere, are true reflections of Korean customs and tradition at the same time. So they sure will serve as a fantastic way to understand the culture and customs of Korea.
