A fun introduction to Haiku for children! Divided into seasons, each haiku features boys doing the things boys(and girls)often do. The author explains that every haiku in the book is inspired by his children or his own childhood. There was none of the gross-out humor that is often present in books touted as being "for boys", instead I found this book to be funny, thoughtful, and sweet. The watercolor illustrations were a perfect comliment to these haikus.
