Cool Melons— Turn to Frogs! The Life and Poems of Issa

By Sue Heavenrich, Sally’s Bookshelf

[I love] the delicious combination of text, haiku and artwork. In addition to lovely watercolor paintings, Kasuko Stone paints calligraphy down the margins. This book is fun to read and inspires one to grab a pencil and a camera and head outside to see what treasures the world holds.
