Even though Yum Yung lives in Korea, the idea of a New York bagel just pops into his head one day, and he decides he just has to have one. Yum Yung’s search begins at the highest mountaintop in Korea, where he finds a pigeon to take his message to New York. "I would like to order one bagel to go." After a long wait and no bagel, Yum Yung asks his friends (the farmer, the fisherman, the beekeeper, and the baker) for help. Their creative solution will make young readers giggle with delight and as Yum Yung (with the help of his friends) fulfills his bagel dream.
