Author's Bio

Tae Jun Lee wrote his most famous stories, including many for children and young adults, during the 1930s. His works are well-loved in Korea for their poetic prose and emotional sensitivity. After Korea's liberation in 1945, Lee settled in North Korea and was a war correspondent during the Korean War (1950-1953). Contemporary Korean artist Dong-Sung Kim was born in 1970 and graduated from Hong-ik University, Seoul, with a major in Oriental Painting. He has illustrated several children's picture books, including Waiting for Mummy, which is painted on han-ji (traditional Korean paper), using traditional muck-sun (Chinese ink line) techniques. Dong-Sung Kim lives in Seoul with his wife and son.
