Zen Ties by Jon J. Muth [in Bloomsbury Review]

Zen TiesI confess: I’m a Muth addict, even though technically my kids are too old for his picture books. But really, his books are ageless and we can all learn some major life lessons from them. Zen Ties is Muth’s enthralling follow-up to his Caldecott Honor Book, Zen Shorts: It’s both an artistic stunner and a literary gem.

Giant panda Stillwater and his adorable visiting nephew Koo, who speaks only in haiku (get it?), guide siblings Karl, Addy, and Michael to befriend their elderly neighbor, Miss Whitaker.
