Korean Children's Favorite Stories

. Tuttle Publishing, $18.95 (95pp) ISBN 978-0-8048-3591-6

After collecting the literature of Japan and Bali, author Kim So-un and artist Jeong Kyoung-Sim introduce a host of characters in Korean Children's Favorite Stories, including a wily old woman who outwits ""The Bad Tiger"" and, in ""The Pumpkin Seeds,"" a pair of brothers-one proud, one humble-who get their just deserts. Smoky watercolors bring other creatures, such as demons and snakes, to life as well.
