Kim Hyo-eu: I Am the Subway


I Am the Subway is an illustrated children's book by award winning author and illustrator, Kim Hyo-eun.

Accompanied by the constant, rumbling ba-dum ba-dum of its passage through the city, the subway has stories to tell. Between sunrise and sunset, it welcomes and farewells people, and holds them along with their joys, hopes, fears, and memories in its embrace.

Originally published in Korean and brought to English-speaking audiences with the help of renowned translator Deborah Smith (The Vegetarian), I Am the Subway vividly reflects the shared humanity that can be found in crowded metropolitan cities.

Suitable for ages 3-10 (and adults, too).
