The children of the Kim family knew of many ways to spend the long, leisurely days in the Inner Court, but best of all they liked to hear the stories of their wise old grandmother Halmoni. Korea, the little country that for centuries was 'like a bone between two dogs, ' proudly cherishes a folklore as colorful and intriguing as those of its neighbors China and Japan. And Halmoni knew all the wonderful fairy tales and folk tales that were the cream of thousands of years of Korean Life.
