The Sun and the Moon
By서희주Hee Ju Seo, Class 3-6
Once there was a mother. The mother sold rice cakes. One day the mother met a tiger. The tiger said, “If you give me a rice cake I won’t eat you”. So the mom gave him a rice cake but the tiger kept saying, “If you give me a rice cake, I won’t eat you.” But finally there was no more rice cake so the tiger ate the mom, so the mom died that night.
The tiger wore the mother’s clothes so he visited the mother’s house. There was a sister and a brother inside. The tiger wanted to eat them. So he looked like he was their mom, but the brother felt it was not their mother. They went outside and climbed the tree and they said to the sky “Please let a rope fall”. So a strong rope came down.
The tiger said “Please give me a rope too.” So a weak rope came down. The tiger fell down to the ground. The brother and sister became the sun and the moon.

Once there were one good brother, sister and mother who lived in a town in the mountains. The mother went out to sell rice cake. The brother and the sister waited for her at the door. Suddenly someone knocked. However, through the door came a tiger’s paw. The brother and the sister were scared, but calmly went out into the backyard.
The brother and sister walked up to the top of the backyard trees. The brother and the sister searched for the tiger but the well was dry. The brother and the sister could not be seen in the tree they hid in. So instead of climbing the tree the tiger had slipped and fallen. The brother and sister watched and laughed a lot.
Then a rope from the sky suddenly began to come down. The brother and the sister climbed the rope quickly. Another rope came down and the tiger began to climb. But his rope snapped because it was weak. The tiger died. The sister, scared of the night, became the sun.The brother became the moon.
