Reviews

"In this follow-up to No Kimchi for Me (2017), Kim utilizes her signature bold cartoon style, developing distinct characters with touches of humor. Backmatter includes explanations of taekwondo, symbols of Korean culture, and a glossary. A sweet tale of shared perseverance that bursts with color, culture, and energy."--Kirkus Reviews

"Created with pencil, colored pencil, and pastel and assembled digitally, Kim's art features panels, thought bubbles, and a variety of expressive, energetic animals. Bits of Korean are spoken and written throughout, lending authenticity to this story, which will resonate with anyone who has faced down an obstacle." --Publishers Weekly

"Incredibly pleasant, colorful illustrations pair with an always engaging subject and valuable lessons to make this a winner."--Booklist
