From the Publisher:
When Koo, his haiku-speaking nephew arrives for the summer, Stillwater is excited about the adventures they will have, but when a grouchy neighbor tries to put the kibosh on their fun, Stillwater recruits Koo and his friends to help change her very negative disposition, in the companion title to Zen Shorts. Summer has arrived -- and so has Koo, Stillwater's haiku-speaking young nephew. And when Stillwater encourages Koo, and his friends Addy, Michael, and Karl to help a grouchy old neighbor in need, their efforts are rewarded in unexpected ways.Zen Ties is a disarming story of compassion and friendship that reaffirms the importance of our ties to one another.
Annotation:
Stillwater the Panda's little nephew, Koo, who speaks only in sweet haikus, arrives for a summer visit. The two are joined by a small gang of Stillwater's friends, and soon help out old Miss Whitaker. Though she has a reputation for meanness, Miss Whitaker surprises everyone. Filled with haikus and a gentle sentiment about the importance of neighborliness, ZEN TIES is the companion to the Caldecott Honor Book, ZEN SHORTS.

Praise

"From a religious tradition that makes no theological demands and that will be unfamiliar to most readers, Stillwater offers a model of pure saintliness, and children will instantly respond to him." 11/19/2007

"The pleasure, as always, is with Muth's irresistible storytelling, both visual and textual...The story's theme of intergenerational kindness is tender, and the text is infused with bits of haiku, wordplay and small lessons that charmingly avoid didacticism. A welcome return." 1/1/2008
