My Name is Yoon This striking picture book describes the uncertainties of a young Korean girl, Yoon, as she starts school in a new country. She refuses to write her name - which looks more reassuring in Korean script - and insists on writing other words like 'cat' or 'bird' in its place. But when a classmate makes friendly overtures, Yoon loses her shyness and happily writes her name in English. The illustrations mix the surreal and the everyday, to convey her growing acceptance that 'different can be good'.
