Waiting for Mummy, Hardback Book


Book of the Year in Korea, Waiting for Mummy is a deceptively simple story of patience rewarded.

A child waits for his mother at a tram-stop. Trams come and go, people alight, yet her devoted son waits stoically and patiently, even as a snowstorm gathers.

A new edition of a 1938 story by one of Korea's best-loved writers, Tae-Jun Lee, Waiting for Mummy has been a publishing sensation since its re-release with Dong-Sung Kim's illustrations.

It won the major Baeksang Publishing Award and was nominated as 'Book of the year' by each of Korea's three major national newspapers.

It was also shortlisted for Germany's major kids book prize, the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis.

This is the first English language edition.
