Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When a peasant in long-ago Korea brings his family a mirror, they each see a different person in it. PW said, "A poetic and sparse retelling brings freshness and joy to this tale. Zemach's translucent watercolors . . . echo the serene beauty of Oriental art." Ages 4-8.

Format: Paperback
This delightful picture book appeals to people of all ages and is a great read-aloud to both children and adults. No one in this Korean family has ever seen a mirror, so no one has ever seen what he/she looks like! When the father brings home a mirror from a business trip and hides it in his trunk, not really knowing what it is, each member of the family sneaks a peek in the mirror, but they all see something entirely different for hilarious results. I cannot believe this book has not won major is an enchanting and laugh out loud tale!
