Beautifully done children's book describing in simplicity the difficult life of famous haiku poet Issa, and accompanied by some of his poems. Excellent addendum at the end educates about the art of haiku. Great resource for elementary teachers.

Life, real life is rich and expansive and crosses topics that some might find uncomfortable. But from real pain comes real beauty. The paintings in this book are exquisite and the poetry is inspirational. Do not be afraid to expose your children, but ask them to think about what they are reading. This book serves as a guide in my class for how to write haiku poetry.

The underlying message in this book is destructive. Don't be fooled by the pictures. This book tells of a father who remarries while his son is 7 yrs old. The story tells how the stepmother and son did nothing but argue. Eventually, the father sent the boy away to live a life of hardship. Rid this book from the library.
