The 5th Nami Island International Book Festival, which was held on Nami Island in 2010, gathered renowned children’s writers and illustrators from 22 countries to calibrate on a special project called “Peace Story,” an anthology of children’s short stories with an emphasis on peace.
The book tells story of a little girl who has been wishing to come to the world for the past 1000 years, but God has denied her requests. She finally is allowed to come to the world, but she leaves her heart in paradise, which compels her to spend all of her life searching for her heart.
