A cute story within a story, Mr Pak Buys a Story is a historical tale from Korea. At that time, wandering storytellers would travel through the land, telling stories and entertaining audiences. In this tale, Mr and Mrs Kim live deep in the heart of the country and they send their servant to the city to buy a story. A theif swindles the hapless Mr Pak but in the end it is Mr Pak who has the last laugh as you will discover when you read this book.
