This is a picture book about a Korean tiger named Horangi who takes the day off of being the village protector. He lets his friend Kkachi, the magpie, talk him into it, but he just can’t shake the feeling that something isn’t right. He wonders if there are bad guys around. If there are, Horangi will bite them… because that’s what tigers do!
* Descriptions and illustrations of 18 Korean objects and symbols found in the book
