NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR
This was written when I was living in Singapore. After the publication of Sea Robbers, I was commissioned by Heinemann Asia to put together a collection of traditional tales from Korea. It was a lot of fun to write. I visited Korea and collected all the folktales and legends I could find.
What I found was that, although all cultures create their own folktales which are distinctively their own, many of the themes and even some of the storylines are universal.
