A long, long time ago, the sea wasn't salty, pigs didn't have short snouts, and rabbits were missing their fluffy tails. How the sea grew salty, pigs got their snouts, and rabbits their familiar fluffy tails is revealed in this sparkling collection of Korean folk stories. Gillian McClure's delightful reworkings of well-known fables transport readers of all ages to an exotic world of tigers, rice cakes, and persimmons. All are beautifully depicted in McClure's distinctive, elegant illustrations.
