It is set in Korea but the kid wants a New York bagel, kinda through me for a loop but it teaches one to be patient
Yum Yung wants a bagel. A New York bagel, to be precise. How he got this idea, living in Korea (where there are no bagels that he knows of) is a bit of a mystery, but there it is.

So he decides to order in, but in the meantime it takes forever so he asks around. No surprise here, the people he asks are the same ones who has what he needs to MAKE a bagel at the end of the book.

Simple story, fun ending - it could only have been made better with the inclusion of a recipe.

I do not understand this book and why a begal from New York has anything to do with a child in Korea. The message is that anything can happen but very unrealistic.

My sister-in-law has met the author and read her books. I took her recommendation and loved this and "The Good Day Cafe."
Not as well written as her other books.
Drab illustrations for a decent story line.
