  • Lovely picture book about Basho on his travels, which includes both lines of haiku and some cool Japanese written characters.


  • Seeing this title, I immediately thought how Basho's wise and generous simplicity could prove fruitful subject for a children's book. This treatment feels half-hearted: the illustrations are very good but one can easily imagine more to appeal to both young and old eyes alike. Given the many poems that Basho wrote -- and the short form employed -- there is relatively little of his work here. (His work could have proven the source of this book's central energy.) For some reason, a poem by Issa app [...]


  • I really loved this book, maybe the best one I have read throughout April while celebrating National Poetry month--I am not a huge poetry fan, so it is important that I spend a little time with it, actually trying, and this month seems to be as good a month as any. I also have been on a streak of reading more non-adult as the intended audience books in an effort to keep even with that work as I inch ever further away from that time in my kids lives. Thisis a tale of Basho, the most famous and be [...]


  • This is a wonderful picture book. The text and illustrations work perfectly to characterize the work and life of the 17th Century Japanese poet Basho, still admired and beloved for his wonderful haiku. Children will benefit from a beautifully nuanced introduction to this poetry form. But many other things quietly unfold. This is also an introduction to Japanese characters and calligraphy and to the history and geography of Japan. It might inspire children and adults to write haiku, an attractive [...]


  • This book is one of those books that you want to keep for a long time & pass on to your children & children's children!Amazingly beautifully narated & equally wonderfully illustrated. On top of that, both the author & artist are non-Japanese, non-Asian! Thank you to all involved in creating this beautiful book.However, more publicity could be done to promote this book though. It is a wonderful piece of beauty that should be shared!


  • This book does a wonderful job of conveying Basho's journey and delight in the beautiful sensory experiences in life. This isn't a story of events, but rather vignettes of Basho's travels with haiku woven throughout. It was a lovely morning read, leaving me a calm meditative feeling. I think anyone with an appreciation for art and nature would enjoy this book.


  • Delightful.I've enjoyed Robert Haas's translation of Basho, so when I noticed this book on the shelf at the library, I was immediately interested. I was not disappointed.The book tells the story of Basho's travels, interspersed with his haiku. This is a nice introduction to haiku for young people.


  • This book highlights the traveling experiences of Basho through standard text plus accompanying illustrations and pertinent haiku.By reading this story, your eyes will be opened to the simple pleasures of nature.*the book also shows japanese characters and words foruntain, rain, river, tree, fish, fire, horse, moon, friend, and world.


  • This is a simple, yet wonderfully illustrated book. It is a good introduction of some of his poems. I am not a big fan of poems, but I love the simple ways he had used to paint pictures of the fascinating scenarios he had seen.


  • In particular, I liked the illustration because it looked like calligraphy. I enjoy Japanese storytelling which is so different from Western plot. This seemed to be more about the process than the end goal. And the haiku throughout were very cute.


  • A haiku poem is a companion for the story on each page. As well as ELA we could make connections to the senses cluster in science. Each haiku includes language that appeals to two of the five senses and we could discern which two apply.


  • The illustrations pop out like 3D. The landscape, details are very beautifully done. Travel & it's pleasure are very nicely depicted in pictures & Haikus. Lovely read & simple!


  • A children's book that follows the travels of Basho (the seventeenth-century Japanese haiku poet). The appeal of this book is in the illustrations by Demi.
