From the Guardian:
Christopher Richardson, who is researching North Korean children's literature for his PhD at Sydney University, says the late former leaders of North Korea are both credited with writing children's stories, with Kim Jong-il the apparent author of Boys Wipe Out Bandits, "an ode to the redemptive power of ultra-violence", he writes in an article published in the International Review of Korean Studies, and Kim Il-sung acknowledged as the author behind the anti-American fable The Butterfly and The Cock.
Well, color me agog.
Happily, the author of the article predicted and answered my Number One Burning Question:
So far, Kim Jong-un has not – as far as Richardson can tell – written his own children's book, but he anticipates it won't be long until North Korea's latest leader steps into the children's literature arena.
