About this book
"[S]even stories from Korea. The large neatly enclosed full-color pictures are vividly colored [...] will certainly capture readers' attention. Most useful for libraries." -- ALA Booklist

The world of Korean fairy tales is populated with malevolent giants, whimsical goblins, sly rabbits, greedy tigers and, of course, people (some good, some wicked, all utterly human in their ambitions and limitations). Kathleen Seres' skillful adaptation perfectly captures the timeless appeal, simplicity and humor of the Korean narrative art.

Through the collaborative efforts of Norman Sibley and Robert Krause. Each story is vibrantly illustrated with memorable images incorporating a wealth of Korean folk motifs. Sun & Moon is not a book just for children, but, to borrow a phrase from George McDonald, "for the childlike, whether five, or fifty, or seventy-five."
