Winner of the 11th Biryongso Literary Award
Author Hwang Seon-ae
2022 Biryongso Literary Award Winner
A very special adventure in which a story-loving duck realizes the ‘power of words’
“Are you certain about that?”
A masterpiece about the problems of recklessly moving unconfirmed words or other people's words! The writer's wit and wit shines brightly. -From the review (Kang Jeong-yeon, Kim Ri-ri, Kim Ji-eun)
Hwang Seon-ae, who won the 11th Biryongso Literary Award, has published 『Duck Beak Story』.
The Biryongso Literary Award has selected fresh and unique works every year for the lower grades who are starting to read books on their own.
Every time award-winning works such as 『Midnight Moonlight Restaurant』, 『A Draw Machine Without Loss』, and 『In a Pencil Case at Deep Night』 are published, they quickly become bestsellers and invigorate domestic lower grade literature.
『Duck Beak Story』 is a fable about the problems of conveying the wrong words. It is a work that captured the hearts of the judges with the excellent writing skills and the wit and wit of the writer who skillfully leads the story.
Each story of 'rumor' and 'truth' intertwines and intertwines with each other, from a wild mouse who is falsely accused, a cook who is damaged by a bizarre rumor, a hunter who is branded a coward, and finally a ladybug who knows all the truth. It is piled up one by one to think about the 'power of words'.
In a reality where unconfirmed words spread easily through the Internet and it is not easy to filter out 'real news' and 'fake news', this cute and lovely fable is expected to resonate with children's readers.
Duck mad for stories
A duck, who is willing to spread even false rumors here and there, loses its beak while being chased by a hunter.
He tells the story more excitedly by going around the neighborhood with only his beak.
In the meantime, an incident occurs in which a picture of a rabbit is torn in a village in the forest, but the duck misunderstands a field mouse as the culprit and spreads rumors here and there...
