Yungsu has difficulty adjusting to life in the United States after his family moves from Korea. Since they were all happy in Korea, he can't understand why they left. When his father tells him a story from his own childhood, it helps him to understand a parent's desire to provide a better life for the next generation. Yumi Heo combines oil paintings, pencil drawings and collage to create her distinctive art style. Her innovative use of color and perspective reflect Yungsu's moods throughout the book. (Ages 4-8)
