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!

Woong remains my favorite fictional character to date, and when I found out his book won the Bronze Medal from the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards, I was more proud of him than myself.
Flower Swallow tells Woong's story from the time a catastrophic flood swept him away from his family, through his attempt to survive as a street urchin in North Korea, to his quest for freedom and belonging that eventually lead him to his new home.

"In THE BELOVED DAUGHTER, Alana Terry presents Chung-Cha, a young woman who is interred in one of North Korea’s notorious prison camps because of her family’s faith. In this meticulously researched novel, Terry gives readers everything a good novel should--a gripping story, an uplifting theme, encouragement in their own faith and exquisite writing—a story too real to be a simple novel.
