Once Upon a Time in Korea
An Elementary Reader
by Dr. Inku Kim-Marshall, head of the Division of Korean Studies, Georgetown University
2006 editorial review in Language Link: Foreign Language Resources for Teachers and Librarians: "This book is designed for anyone who has some Korean vocabulary and is familiar with the basic grammar. It provides delightful and easy short stories rewritten in simple sentences and using carefully selected sets of basic vocabulary, without sacrificing original meanings. The book is beautifully illustrated, and each story is accompanied by a vocabulary list in English, and cultural notes are included with some of the stories."
Look inside the book: A large pdf file (651k) consists of a sample excerpt of the first 23 pages, which includes the introductory material, table of contents (p. 12), and first story (p. 16).
