A picture book that seeks an emotional transformation through Gyuri, who goes inside a painting and starts a fantastic adventure, changing the boring and unfamiliar space for grownups into an amusing playground.

Book Intro

(English) The Gyuri goes to an art museum

Gyuri visits an art museum with her mother, but it doesn't amuse her at all. She may like the zoo, but not the art gallery. Gyuri is bored, unlike her mother and her friends; that is, the adults excitedly talking to each other. But when she was looking at a folk painting with animals, Gyuri falls into a wondrous world of imagination. A tiger pops out of the painting and gives Gyuri a ride into the woods, where she has a great time with other animals. She dives into a river and swims with the fish, and sings together with all kinds of birds on a hilltop. Then she hops on a bird's back and flies back to the museum. The fun adventures in the mountains, river, and sky have ended, but from now on, art museums will always be an imaginary playground for Gyuri.

The folk painting that Gyuri saw at the museum demonstrates Korea's unique and original style, carrying the raw and simple images of the folk arts. Because folk paintings are unsophisticated but honest, free but serious, which allow the imagination to stretch endlessly. Gyuri Goes to the Art Museum follows the classic storyline of fantasy picture books. For example, in Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, Max goes off to his imaginary world when he has conflicts with his mother to control his emotions. In this book, Gyuri switches her emotions by going into a painting and starting an imaginary adventure that transforms the boring, unfamiliar space for adults into an amusing playground. Children may feel a vicarious pleasure of learning a range of different emotions from the book.


(French) Gyuri au musée

L’album décrit la journée de Gyuri où elle a plongé et s’est amusée dans les tableaux du musée, et est retournée à la maison. Cependant, elle n’est pas intéressée par la visite du musée pour la première fois. Le vieux bâtiment du musée lui semble bizarre et même sombre. De plus, il n'y avait pas d’amis pour s’amuser ensemble. En revanche, lorsqu'elle voit un tableau folklorique d’animal exposé au musée, elle entre sans hésitation dans le monde de la peinture. Elle part à l’aventure avec les animaux du tableau et ils connaissent un succès du voyage et deviennent les meilleurs amis. Après l'aventure, Gyuri revient à la réalité et rentre chez elle, mais ses pas sont légers.
