Write The First Customer Review

In this Korean folktale, a tiger overhears a mother calming her baby with the offer of a dried persimmon. The tiger assumes that a dried persimmon is the fiercest beast in the world--because the mere mention of it quiets the child instantly. When a thief jumps on the tiger's back, the terrified tiger runs off to his mountain convinced the fierce persimmon is after him. Full-color illustrations.
