In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Won Ton and Chopstick- A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku by Lee Wardlaw, illustrated by Eugene Yelchin – Oh how much I love this new book. Absolutely special. Fantastically beautiful. Love that the whole book is told in senryu poems that are a form of haiku. Also appreciate the nod to Basho, the Japanese haiku master. I’ve found that the other book: Won Ton: A Cat Tale Told in Haiku is one of the most inviting stories that introduce poetry to children. They love reading from the cat’s perspective. I still wonder over Eugene Yelchin’s talent as a fantastic illustrator and additionally an incredible author. Highly recommended: get both books. Share both books. Enjoy both books. They’re splendiforous!
I’ve blogged about Won Ton before and also another story told in Haiku here:
Goodreads Summary: “Won Ton has a happy life with his Boy, until…Ears perk. Fur prickles.
Belly low, I creep…peek…FREEZE!
My eyes full of Doom.A new puppy arrives, and nothing will be the same.Told entirely in haiku and with plenty of catitude, the story of how Won Ton faces down the enemy is a fresh and funny twist on a familiar rivalry.”
Sharing a favorite video of Lee Wardlaw sharing a selection of poems from Won Ton.
About Pull up a chair, it’s a Saturday Book Share: I’ve had many books I review that I just want to feature. Simple and easy, celebrate a new book encounter. So that’s what Saturday Book Share is about for me, celebrating books! Perhaps some days I’ll share the book with a short reading of a portion. Or perhaps other days I’ll just share a glimpse of the book.
