Editorial Reviews

Praise for Hi, Koo

* "In a word, magical." -Kirkus, starred review

* "Marvelous . . . a joyous addendum to the Stillwater books." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"These very short poems, ranging from fresh to poignant to prosaic, are enhanced by the beautiful watercolor-and-ink illustrations on every page." -Booklist

"The poems are deftly aimed at kid experiences . . . and the phrasing is often evocative; additionally . . . Muth''s delicate watercolors are triumphant." -Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books

"Even readers who are not typically interested in poetry will be captivated by Muth''s artistry in both words and images." -School Library Journal

"The illustrations are beautifully rendered by Muth in muted colors, with deft brush strokes that suggest the calligraphy of the Far East." -New York Times Book Review

"Muth''s watercolors are as clear and translucent as the child-friendly, easily understood haiku, the gentle mood of his paintings perfectly matching the tranquil emotion of the poems... young readers may enjoy tracking the "alphabetical path" through the book" -Horn Book

"There are many things to like about Jon J Muth''s newest picture book, Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons. From concept to execution, it''s a picture book that hits all the right notes... It''s an outstanding collection of haiku from a fine writer and exquisite illustrator." -Kirkus
