Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
A fairy tale from Korea with the requisite lovely but poor maiden, her aged and deserving parent, and a terrible dragon who demands 300 bags of rice in return for allowing the river floods to subside. Rest assured that all is well at the end, and the beautiful maiden marries the kind-hearted rich man after proving her mettle by bearding (or is that fanging?) the monster in his watery lair. The softly rich drawings provide an exotic setting for a familiar coming of age story.
