About the Book
This picture book in a graphic-novel style follows two children whose search for their missing Halmoni (grandmother in Korean) leads them into a world inspired by folklore, complete with mischievous goblins (dokkebi), a greedy tiger, a clever rabbit, and a wily fox. It is filled with a number of Easter eggs for readers of all ages to discover, and is inspired by the Korean folktales that author and illustrator Julie Kim heard while growing up.
