Product Details


★ ”Rich in folklore, comedy, and color, a riotous and pleasurable treat.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred

★ Kim’s story is absolutely enchanting, but her stupendously vivacious illustrations prove even more memorable. Amplifying details immediately stand out from the first pages: the rice maker found in virtually every Asian American home, the well-used kitchen towel hanging slightly askew, the melding of Western/Korean architectural aesthetics. Kim imbues every scene with infectious energy, inviting readers to join in the clever challenges to bring the family safely back together.
—Terry Hong, Shelf Awareness, starred

“The graphic novel picture book sequel to the bestselling “Where’s Halmoni?” by Seattle author Julie Kim came out in October with gorgeous art, humor and a story about the immigrant experience of traversing two worlds.”
Seattle Times

“A lovely and lively sequel and perfect companion to Kim’s first inventive and immersive expedition traversing two cultures.”

“This very non-apologetic bilingual nature of the stories is healing to read.”

“Kim infuses her novel with strikingly beautiful landscapes, warm character illustrations, and the nostalgia of childhood curiosity transports audiences straight into the storybook. Her genuine enthusiasm towards her craft is undeniable and shows in every page, making “Where’s Joon?” a celebration of love, family, and Korean-American experiences.”
—The Daily

“Jaw-dropping art with vibrant colors.”
—Imagination Soup
