About this project

Hello, 

Thank you for supporting the publication of my book!!

Written by Christopher H,K. Lee, and illustrated by Yoom Thawilvejakul, <Clever Swallow> is based on popular Korean folktales, and they are recreated to give the young readers a unique experience in reading and interacting with the stories. 


There are eight different episodes of continuous adventures and events during the Swallow's journeys to the South. Within each event the Swallow gets in trouble with other animals but cleverly escapes his danger with his courage and making wise decisions. Readers can interact with the stories by choosing their own answers (there's no right or wrong answers!) to the questions to skip and jump back and forth to different episodes.

Episode 1 – “The Mighty Candy”
Episode 2 – “A Musical Lump”
Episode 3 – “Bear’s Promise”
Episode 4 – “Light-Eared (Easy Going) Swallow”
Episode 5 – “Gold Glasses or Silver Glasses?”
Episode 6 – “The Swallow is the King.”
Episode 7– “The Cost of Smell”
Episode 8 – “A Kind Bear”
