Meet Stillwater, a giant panda who becomes the neighbor of Addy, Michael, and Karl. Each child visits Stillwater and receives a story taken from classic Japanese folk tales. The stories are applicable to something the child is experiencing at that moment, but they are also a broader life lesson on generosity, luck, and anger. Award winning illustrator Jon Muth alternates his characteristically elegant watercolors with bold ink drawings in this special book. 41 pp., hc.
