It's been a great year for Woong! After winning the a bronze medal from the Moonbeam awards, Flower Swallow went on to win silver in the Illumination Book Awards!
Woong's story is the touching memoir-like tale of a North Korean street urchin with a mischievous streak the size of Huckleberry Finn and a heart as compassionate as Tiny Tim's.
I'm so thrilled that Flower Swallow received this award, and I know if Woong were here, he'd tell us it's WICKED AWESOME!
