Set in Korea during the 1930s (a time of poverty and danger during which Korea was subjugated by the Japanese), 'Waiting for Mummy' is the simple story of a young boy waiting at a tram stop for his mother. We don't know where she has been, nor what has detained her. All we know is that her devoted child is waiting for her return. Trams come and go, people alight, yet the child waits stoically and patiently, even as a snowstorm gathers. Will Mummy ever return? The suspense is subtly resolved in the final magical illustration. A new edition of a story by one of Korea's best-loved children's writers, 'Waiting for Mummy' has been a publishing sensation in Korea since its publication with Dong Sung Kim's new illustrations in 2004. It has won the prestigious Baeksang Publishing Award for children's literature and was selected as Book of the Year by three of Korea's national newspapers, as well as receiving the Korean Publishers Association's 'book of the month' award. Its Australian publication will mark its first publication in English anywhere in the world.
