Jon Muth's Zen Shorts was named a Caldecott Honor book in 2006 and introduces Stillwater, a giant Panda who befriends three children and entertains them with classic Zen stories. Nothing heavy-handed or particularly religious here, just brief meditations on how our perceptions and thoughts often lead us astray. Beautiful full-color paintings depict Stillwater and the children while spare, Eastern-style pen and ink drawings illustrate the Zen tales. A Fine first edition in a Fine dust jacket.
