Another book for my Newbery Awards list. I loved, loved, loved it. It is set in Korea and is the story of a young orphaned boy who is taken in by a homeless man and they become friends. They survive by scavenging in rubbish heaps and gleaning fields and foraging. They refuse to steal or beg. The story is a sort of parable about working hard and being honest, and having the courage to continue in spite of the odds being against you.
