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.
