From time immemorial, folk tales and stories have delighted children everywhere. Children are most happy when they are listening to stories as they fall sleep, and living the stories in their dreams.
Sometimes the stories make them feel happy, sometimes sad, weak or strong, scared or brave, but mostly the stories make them grow up. Children who read many stories can learn how to behave, how to dream, how to make their dreams come true, and how to sympathize with others.
Here in these twenty most wonderful stories, children will meet the long-time friends of Korean children. A rabbit who outwits a tiger, a brother and a sister who became the Sun and the Moon, ogres and their magic clubs, a tortoise and hare who are totally different from the ones in Aesop's fable, rats who want the Sun to became their son-in-law, and many many more beloved characters.
Such stories as these, while appealing to children everywhere, are true reflections of Korean customs and tradition at the same time. So these also serve as a wonderful way to understand the culture and customs of Korea.
