Where on Earth is My Bagel?

How’s this for a book concept: A little boy in rural Korea suddenly has a hankering for a New York bagel. That’s the story sisters Frances and Ginger Park set out to tell in their modern fable Where on Earth is My Bagel? Grace Lin’s illustrations of the boy, Yum Yung, and the Korean countryside bring the story to life. My son, a Japanese-American boy living in rural Japan likes bagels, which have been hard to get around here up till recently. I thought he’d like this book, and he did.

A bit of trivia: Co-author Frances Park and I had short stories in the same issue of Chaminade Literary Review several years ago.
