韓國知名童書作家黃善美繼國際暢銷書《想飛的母雞》(The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly)後，又一本英文譯本，這次的主角，是一個勇敢追夢的狗。
The Dog Who Dared to Dream是一本關於孤獨、友誼、在你所信任的人身上卻遭到殘酷待遇的故事，也是人狗關係的睿智寓言，充滿了對勇敢生命的禮讚。黃善美曾經表示，這本書對她日後的創作產生了很大的影響。
This is the story of a dog named Scraggly. Born an outsider because of her distinctive appearance, she spends most of her days in the sun-filled yard of her owner's house. Scraggly has dreams and aspirations just like the rest of us. But each winter, dark clouds descend and Scraggly is faced with challenges that she must overcome. Through the clouds and even beyond the gates of her owner's yard lies the possibility of friendship, motherhood and happiness - they are for the taking if Scraggly can just hold on to them, bring them home and build the life she so desperately desires.
The Dog Who Dared to Dream is a wise tale of the relationship between dog and man, as well as a celebration of a life lived with courage. Translated into English for the first time, it is a classic from Sun-mi Hwang, an international bestselling author.
