"Michael," said Karl. "There's a really big bear in the backyard." This is how three children meet Stillwater, a giant panda who moves into the neighborhood and tells amazing tales. To Addie he tells a story about the value of material goods. To Michael he pushes the boundaries of good and bad. And to Karl he demonstrates what it means to hold on to frustration. With graceful art and simple stories that are filled with love and enlightenment, Jon Muth -- and Stillwater the bear -- present three ancient Zen tales that are sure to strike a chord in everyone they touch.

This book combines good illustrations with good stories that are meaningful and deep. I have read many books to my children, but I have enjoyed this one the most of all. I only hope that the stories and their meanings sink in and are of guidance to my children (and myself) in our daily lives.

This is a delightful reading not only for young readers but for adults unfamiliar with the teachings that are provided. It can be a catalyst for further discussions and I encourage using the stories to launch "what if" or "how would you?" dialogues.
