A nice little folk tale, not too doctored up. Lari Don consulted versions and variants according to her source statement. A great reversal story. Reminiscent of the rattlesnake parable and the elephant poop parable. Would be worth learning to tell, if from an original rather than this book. There's an authentic version in Myths and Legends from Korea: An Annotated Compendium of Ancient and Modern, by James H. Grayson.
Penny Lamprell, graphic designer, made some great choices in title design and use of white space. There were a few pages where the illustrations were too dark for black type.
