Mong-i loves to sleep. When she learns that she can sleep as much as she wants in Sleepy Land, she puts on her sheep hat and follows her teddy to Sleepy Land. There, she sleeps to her heart´s content, and wakes up. But she is downhearted to see there is no one to play with or cook her dinner, because everyone else is sleeping. She doesn´t like Sleepy Land anymore. What´s worse, she realizes that she is turning into a sheep. Shocked, she looks for a way home, but gets lost and finally falls asleep tired. This time she wakes up to her mom´s voice. It is a classic tale of a sleepyhead turning into a cow, adapted for today´s children with colorful dreamlike pictures, but its wisdom remains unchanged.

Silver Salmon wonders at the fact that salmons go back home despite countless obstacles only to lay eggs, and questions how laying eggs can be the only purpose of a salmon’s life. When he hears a story from Green River about his father, however, he comes to ponder on the meaning of what his father said, that there’s a path salmons must take. Finally, Silver Salmon arrives at the upper part of the river by leaping over the waterfall, instead of taking the convenient, manmade waterway. There, Silver Salmon lays eggs, together with Clear-Eyed Salmon, and
dies. With time, winter comes around, and little baby salmons are growing, waiting for spring to come, underneath the thick slab of ice.

My Happy Family
Written and Illustrated by HAN Sung-ok, 2006
Picture Book Age 5+

This picture book depicts in ironic ways disturbing scenes of a happy family´s outing. On a beautiful spring day, So-yeon´s family goes out to visit an art gallery. At home, they seem one happy normal family. But once outside, they are selfish, rude, and only caring about their family members. At the art gallery, they are loud and pushy. On the road, they break many traffic laws including illegal U-turns and illegal parking in a reserved space for the disabled. They even encourage overspeed! Now a question arises from readers, Do they deserve to be called a happy family? But, wait, who can criticize them without a pang of guilty feelings? Isn´t every family like them in one way or another? It is a picture book that drops a bomb of conscience on the thick-skinned society.
