As they did with In the Moonlight Mist, Daniel San Souci and illustrator Eujin Kim Neilan team up for another retelling of a Korean folktale, The Rabbit and the Dragon King. Here, a hypochondriacal king is convinced that eating a rabbit's heart will cure his fatal illness. But the rabbit doesn't want to die, either, and his clever ploy not only saves his life, it makes the king believe he has cheated death.
