Publisher Reviews

Today too, Dongdong is playing marbles in a corner of the playground, hoping that his friends will talk to him first. However, the friends do not seem to be interested in marbles or Dongdong. He says, ‘It’s not bad to play alone,’ and he tries to pretend to be calm, but there is a limit to holding out.
Somewhat shy, Dong-dong sneaks away with the excuse that he needs a new bead. Then he stops by the local stationery store and buys a bag of candy. At first, he thought it was marble and picked it up, but fell for his grandfather, who was a very sweet owner.
But this is no ordinary candy. Among the candies of various sizes, shapes, and colors, there was a pattern that caught my eye, and I immediately put it in my mouth... You hear a strange voice. "dong… Dong Dong... Dong Dong... Dong Dong-ah... here it is... here… .” The old sofa is the owner of the voice calling Dong-dong anxiously. On the sofa, I complain that the remote control is stuck in my side and it hurts and that it is difficult to breathe when my dad farts sitting on top of me.
The egg candy then tells the story of the old dog Seulgi, who is being dragged around by Dongdong's hand all day, the father's innermost heart, who constantly nags at Dongdong whenever he makes eye contact, and the happy regards of his grandmother, whom he misses so much but cannot meet. After learning about his heart that he had never thought of even in his dreams, Dongdong now has a clear piece of candy left in his hand. Whose heart will this candy tell Dongdongi?

"love you!" "I miss you." “Do you want to play with me?”
Magical candy that gives you the courage to say the easiest and most difficult words in the world!
Dongdong is a child who is not good at expressing his feelings or understanding the feelings of others. Considering that Gong Cha has three friends, he doesn't seem to refuse to ask to join first, but he doesn't say that until the end. Then, the friends criticize, not criticize, such as saying that they don't know how fun marbles are and that they only play among themselves. In the eyes of his friends, Dongdong will look like a kid who has no interest in soccer, but he can't even guess what those friends are looking at, so it's frustrating.
Friends came to Dongdong’s mind first and said, “Hey, what is that? sounds fun! Join us too.” There is only a scenario that says, “Please include me too.” There is no scenario to say. Maybe it's because of shyness, but it's also because they don't know how to understand the other person's position.
Egg candy tells Dongdong the 'heart' of other beings. The uncomfortable situation on the sofa, the difficult situation of Gu-gi, Dad's sincerity, Grandma's regards... After listening to the various voices of the heart, Dongdongi finally understands the hearts of others, even a little bit. It's like seeing a friend who appeared like a new season at the place where a season left after a splendid greeting, saying a word that he hadn't been able to say to anyone.
I hope that <Roll Candy> will bring the same magic that happened to Dongdongi to countless children who are probably not much different from Dongdongi. The magic of empathy, the magic of courage, the magic of growth.

P.S. In this book, two people who appeared in the author's previous works appear as cameos. Among them, the stationery owner's grandfather may have known about Dong-dong's situation and suggested magic egg candy. Even if you were at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you had a face that would suit you very well. Guessing who the other cameos are should be left for the reader's pleasure.
