When Stillwater the bear moves into the neighborhood, the stories he tells to three siblings teach them to look at the world in new ways.
When Stillwater the panda bear appears in their backyard, Addy, Michael, and Karl are delighted. Each of the three children pays a separate visit to the friendly panda, who responds by recounting a Zen Buddhist tale tailored to that child. While the framing story is illustrated in richly hued watercolors, the three Zen tales are depicted in spare, black-and-white ink drawings. A 2006 Caldecott Honor Book.
