Zen Ties – Jon J Muth (2008)
Zen Ties begins with Stillwater waiting at the train station for his nephew, Koo.
Stillwater brings all the children with him to visit a disagreeable housebound senior.
Koo, Stillwater’s nephew speaks in haikus, which are lovely, and as always the illustrations are beautiful.
As with the other Zen books by Muth, this one also helps to easy the mind and sooth the soul.
