dc.description.abstractI first saw a wall-full of this series at Kyobo Book in Seoul in July, '04. I bought one copy, came home, and worked to order the full set of thirty booklets, workbooks, and audio cassettes from the publisher. Each set cost 9,800 Won. I have divided that cost among the book (6800 Won), booklet (1000 Won), and cassette (2000 Won). The colored booklet features twenty-eight thick, sturdy pages and excellent color reproduction. The art is cartoon-like, simple, and direct. This version, as is common in this series, fills in the motivations and reflections that might characterize the chief actors. This bird is not only trapped; he is also hurt. The farmer not only frees him; he nurses him back to full health. The farmer's neighbors advise him either to eat the bird or to sell him. This telling of the story raises questions. Why would the eagle, who has had no trouble talking to the farmer before, not tell him now that the wall is about to collapse? And is eagle intelligence such that it would, in the natural world as well as the fable world, perceive a wall about to fall and would construct a purposeful sequence like the hat-snatch-and-drop? Han-Joong does a good job with giving the eagle an expressive face. If you are kind to someone, he will someday repay you.en_US
