A young Korean girl must come up with a clever idea to help a spirit tiger who has swallowed the sun by mistake in this fun, charming debut picture book from author-illustrator Hanna Cha. Soe-In is a tiny child in a village full of large people. She struggles with completing chores due to her size, but she never gives up.
One day, when the sky grows dark and full of smoke, Soe-In volunteers to travel into the tall mountains to investigate. She's surprised to find a spirit tiger there and learn he has swallowed the sun by mistake! To help the spirit tiger and her village, Soe-In must come up with a clever idea to solve this gigantic problem. And while she's at it, she just may prove that the smallest people often have the biggest, bravest hearts.
"Cha’s debut picture book captures the bold ethos of an ancient Korean legend with sparkling energy, dramatic fires, and giant tigers. It does not, however, overwhelm the modern sensibilities of this small and resolute girl, thoughtfully trying many solutions to solve this epic problem.... A bold and mythic female underdog tale with the look and feel of an ancient Korean fable." — Kirkus Reviews
