The classic folktale from Korea retold with easy-reading text for children who have just started reading alone. Cheated out of a fortune, Chin’s luck changes when he meets a mysterious monk. For the old man’s gifts of a mat, a spoon and a pair of chopsticks are not as ordinary as they seem. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
