Haha Sisters’ Rice Cake Store
*Three kinds of rice cakes that make wishes come true for sisters who lost how to laugh.*
Suha and Boha are sisters who are two years apart and whose laughter is as fresh as mint when they’re together. With more and more responsibilities they lose their free time and are increasingly compared to each other by their parents. Kkorangji decides to make rice cakes for the sisters. Kkorangji goes down to a basement kitchen at dawn to make two rice cakes as instructed by a secret recipe book. However, the sisters don’t show up because they’re busy studying at cram schools and have no free time. Then it’s time for Wanguri to deliver the rice cakes for making wishes. This delivery requires Wanguri’s courage and wit. Through the imaginative plot with the sisters’ realistic troubles and magical rice cakes for wishes, the author hopes to give children a healthy dose of laughter that will wipe away their worries and pain.
