MetadataShow full item record
Yo-Ho and Kim are Korean boys in Korea. In the book's first five chapters (Section One: Tales of Trouble), they strike up a friendship with an American Sergeant Adams. Their experiences follow the lines of Aesop's fables, at first only in their morals, announced in sayings Sergeant Adams remembers from his father. By the second section (Tales of Success), actual fables are narrated as lessons to the boys. A third section (Tales of Happiness) moves away from fables into Korean customs and holidays. The book was conceived particularly, I imagine, for Koreans learning English in Korea or in the United States. Excellent condition. The last acknowledgement is To Aesop's fables for providing the truths and morals adapted in the stories of Yo-Ho and Kim. The applications of fables never cease to amaze me!
