The over-sized monkish panda Stillwater is paid a visit by his nephew Koo (as in Haiku, which the little panda periodically tells in the course of the story). The watercolors are restful, whimsical and beautiful. Stillwater's interaction with the children, usually with a Buddha-like smile, helps them find value for a cranky elderly neighbor lady, who they then benefit from. The only other adult in the story obliviously reads her newspaper while her daughter tries...tries to point out the big panda bear also waiting at the train station. The front and back inside covers are an added benefit, showing Stillwater and Koo practicing their Tai chi.
