Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Many years ago, when tigers smoked long pipes and rabbits talked to dragons, wise King Sejong ruled the great land of Korea. When a humble servant boy tells of his longing to read and write, King Sejong sets out to create a simple yet beautiful way to write the Korean language. But people reject the new way of writing--until the servant boy gives the king another grand idea. Carol Farley's rich narrative and Robert Jew's lush, glowing paintings bring alive for young readers the fascinating legend of how Korea's hangeul alphabet was invented. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: With the help of a scholar and a young gardener, the wise king of Korea introduces an alphabet that will enable his people to read and write in their own language.
About the Author: Carol Farley became fascinated by Korean literature and history while living in Seoul, Korea, for two years. Her research led her to the legEND of King Sejong in Tale od a Korean Grandmother by Frances Carpenter. She fell in love with the story and was inspired to retell it for children. The result is this book.
Carol Farley has written many children's books, including Mr. Pak Buys a Story, another Korean folktale. A teacher and lecturer, she lives in Nevada.
