In the walled city of Pyung-yang lives a young maiden, known to all as the Weeping Princess. But it is for disobedience that the king banishes his daughter from court. The Princess begins a new life with the poor, filthy beggar, Pabo Ondal, and in doing so, makes a discovery about herself. O'Brien's engaging text and rich watercolor pastels provide an authentic look at the culture of Korea.
