This colorfully illustrated multicultural Korean children's book presents Korean fairy tales and other folk stories—providing insight into a vibrant literary culture.

Korean Children's Favorite Stories is a captivating collection of Korean folktales for children which are still being told, just as they have been for generations. Some are Korean-specific, while others echo those told in other countries. Written with wit and pathos, they unveil the inevitable foibles of people everywhere and expose the human-like qualities of animals and the animal-like qualities of humans.

  • The Grateful Tiger: the story of a magical tiger, which demonstrates how empathy and kindness can affect your life in a positive way
  • The Disowned Student: an intriguing tale of of a stolen identity and spirit
  • The Pheasant, the Dove and the Magpie: the story of three ungrateful birds, one tough mouse, and why pheasants' cheeks are red
  • And more…
