Richard Lewis’ sparkling and meditative children’s book, published in 1965, consists entirely of Japanese haikus that bask in the beautifully simple and sublime glories of nature.
Dew dripping down bamboos, puppies biting on willow trees, and sparrows bathing in sand are just some of the vivid images Lewis conjures up with his enthusiastic reading of his own work, and the gentle string and woodwind musical score sets a poetic, ruminative tone that will entrance children of all ages in this rapturous audiobook.
