Feeling the love in Korea

How to Steal a Dog has been on the bestseller list in Korea for three months!

Dasan Books (the Korean publisher) created this lovely ad. They also came up with some pretty creative marketing ideas - like a puppy giveaway promotion from an online bookstore!

I teach English as a second language, and I have many Korean students. I think I'm going to use "How to Steal a Dog" as study tool!

It's a great book, and I loved it in English. I think my students will love it in both languages :-)

Oh, that's great to hear! I was told that in Korea, the publisher is marketing the book for adults, as well as kids.

This is SO fantastic, Barbara! The BESTSELLER LIST?!? That's wonderful.

They do kid's books right in Korea. I've heard that before from Linda Sue Park, that reading is extremely popular and the bookstores are PACKED. I wish publisher's would get a clue and market kid's/YA books HERE to adults, too!

I read the book yesterday on my snow day!! It was great. I'm going to push it to the librarian!

This week I started the book with all students in my eighth grade English class and we love it!
