North Korean refugees share this fas­ci­nat­ing true story of a se­cret mis­sion that launched hun­dreds of rice-filled bal­loons un­der the cover of rain and dark­ness across the border from South Korea to the starv­ing fam­i­lies left be­hind. Beautiful, in­tri­cately de­tailed il­lus­tra­tions high­light the cul­ture, cus­toms, and land­scape while gen­tly ed­u­cat­ing chil­dren about the vastly dif­fer­ent po­lit­i­cal cli­mates and shared his­tory of North and South Korea.
