Everyone knows that rabbits have short, fluffy tails. But this wasn't always the case. In this captivating version of a Korean folktale, a tiger tells a rabbit the story of how he narrowly escaped being eaten by an evil creature. Amazed that anything could scare a tiger, the curious rabbit dashes off to see the creature. The tiger warns him not to go, but the rabbit doesn't listen and gets himself in a spot of trouble that changes all rabbits forever.Illustrated with dramatic detail and vibrant hues, The Rabbit's Tail will transport young readers to a time deep in Korea's folktale tradition.
