3. Book Intro

 

"Mommy and me and acorns! Mommy, listen!"
The yellow-hatted Acorn has something he wants to tell his mom. It seems like he wants to tell her about his friends—from his strong and mighty friend Almond—to the thoughtful Rice and the sweet-hearted Macadamia Nut who fusses over Acorn when he’s sick. In this book, we learn about how our children must venture out into the world and make new friends. This story of adorable nut friends and their sweet relationships is beautifully illustrated in this slow-paced, heartwarming picture book. Yoon Jee Hoe has worked diligently on this project while thinking of her young son who continues to battle stomach cancer. As the Acorn in the book, her son will go on to laugh and cry with his many friends and be comforted by them, and sometimes even fight with them, but they'll always make up afterwards.
Author-Illustrator Yoon Jee Hoe has a pink-themed message to friends all around the world: Let’s play!
As with all her picture books, this seventh book by Yoon Jee Hoe, Pit-A-Pat with Acorns, is heavy with significance. The words were handwritten by the author herself, and each page has traces of her touch. On the back cover, readers will find the passage: “When you’re happy or you’re sad, think of your friends. Let’s play!”—which is the same message she wants to send to her readers, who are like her friends. She has known numerous people who have shown her love and attention over the years—the readers who have paid close attention and kept up with her hand-illustrated, hand-written works—and the many fans around the world on social media who have sent her words of courage and encouragement. She calls all these people her friends. Yoon is gifting them this book, and inviting them into her world. Let’s play! She says. As her friend, we find it a pleasure to open her book and jump into her world of stories. In the last few pages, we may even find tears in our eyes. We urge our readers to read on to that last page. Only then will you fully appreciate the heartwarming illustrations Yoon has prepared lovingly for her beloved friends.

3. Book Intro

 

The book tells four stories of teenage friends and their friendship and love. It is not easy to open your heart to others, even to your friends, and when you’re too honest, you end up regretting hurting your friend’s feelings with blunt remarks. But having the courage to be honest empowers you to love yourself and to look more closely at the people around you. Only after making blunders and mistakes are you able to look beyond yourself and see those around you, and only when you spend time and energy on your friends and their concerns are you able to take a step toward maturity. Like all teenagers these days, the main character and her friends Jaewon, Yunha, Junjae, and Mina express themselves and communicate with one another and others using their smartphones. They express their emotions using emoticons and short online expressions. But because they communicate mostly with their smartphones instead of seeing one another face to face, it is easy to have misunderstandings. In the first story, the main character ends up lying not for her friends but for someone she hardly knows in a different class. In the second story, Jaewon is ecstatic to hear from Yunha that she has feelings for him and that they should go out, but the very next day, things go wrong for the two of them, and they end up breaking up. Junjae always wants his friends to stand on his left-hand side, but can his classmates understand why? A problem looms between Mina and the main character over a conversation that took place in the SNS group chat. Because of a minor misunderstanding or trivial blunder, the characters in the story face problems with their friends or their boyfriend or girlfriend. They also find themselves acting differently because of someone they are interested in. Things spiral out of control when they make the mistake of clicking on the send button on an incomplete text. What choice will they make to undo the damage? Can they find a different means to communicate and convey what they really wanted to say?

Hojin, a 9-year-old boy, happened to move to a new neighborhood and a new school because his dad got a new job. In the new neighborhood, he encountered Byeongho. He was such a weird kid, and poorly dressed. He didn't go to school on Thursday because he though it was Sunday. On top of that, he knew how to read his name, but he couldn't spell it. At first, Hojin thought Byeongho was stupid. But after watching him for a while, Hojin noticed he was a good painter and a fast runner. So when Byeongho came to him and friendly suggested they play together, he couldn't say no. Hojin taught him how to write his name. They went to school together and played in the neighborhood going here and there. As such, the two boys became friends and made a lot of memories. The author majored in philosophy at university. After graduation, he worked as a screenwriter for more than 20 years and has written scripts for many documentaries, including The Agents of the National Police Agency, and a drama named The Serious Crime Squad. The Inventor Next Door, the first play he published, in 2007, was performed at a theater located on Daehak-ro Street and loved by audiences. In his new book, Choi Woogeun tells the witty and hilarious story of a truly funny boy named Byeongho. This book reminds young readers of the relationships they have with their friends and adult readers of their pure childhood memories. It is a perfect book with a heart-warming story for people of all generations to read, laugh, and sometimes weep over together.

3. Book Intro

 

In 68 Days with Arrogant Jean Louis, an ordinary girl named Oh Yungi gradually gains confidence and improves her position after meeting Jean Louis.
There's a saying that if you want to know what kind of person someone is, look at his/her friends. Who you are friends with is that important; it can affect your whole life. This is true for Oh Yungi. Oh Yungi was an ordinary, quiet girl before meeting Jean Louis. He took a back seat, only did things he was told and thought to herself that he only needed to go half-way in everything. But when Jean Louis transferred to Oh Yungi's class, his peaceful world started to break apart.
It all started on the first day back at school. His childhood friend, Taeju, ran across the crossroad without seeing that the lights had changed and was startled by a running car and fell down. The indifferent response of the curly-haired boy riding in the car made Yungi yell at him, demanding that he apologize to Taeju. He didn't know where that kind of courage came from since he hadn't shouted at anybody in her whole life. After that, his teacher introduced "Jean Louis," a new classmate who had transferred from France. He was the boy in the car that very morning!
Having started off on the wrong foot, the two kept on clashing: in recommending Yungi for the class president, in the cooking class, and so on. For the first time in Yungi's life, he shouted out loud and got in a fist fight, all thanks to Jean Louis. Jean started to get on his nerves because he was changing him. Then, Yungi learned that Jean was also having a hard time because of his overprotective mother. He started to feel a strange sense of kinship with him and to accept that he was quite an okay boy, much better than he had thought. He plucked up the courage and gave him his hand, although it was a little clumsy.
The author, Hwang Sunmi, by using concise but powerful sentences and detailed psychological portrayals, describes how great effects friends have on each other, even though it may seem trivial, and how much a person grows after solving a problem and moving on to a better relationship.
