"A baby wouldn't stop crying, so the mother said..."

This charming, delightful picture book adaptation of the classic Korean folktale,
"The Tiger and the Persimmon," is illustrated by Kim Hwan-yeong, one of Korea's
finest children's book artists, in a style that emulates the old Korean woodcut.
Wi Ki-chol, the writer, has chosen a variant of the Tiger and Persimmon
story to another tale, adding a bumbling cow thief's comical misadventures
and ironic fortune. This book is a "must have" for any folktale or picture
book enthusiast.
