The wisdom of Zen in an exciting new book by Caldecott honoree Jon J Muth!

Leo and Molly love their new neighbourhood. Best of all is their friend Stillwater, a giant panda who lives across the way! And the three friends are quite a team! Stillwater teaches Molly about patience. Leo teaches Stillwater about sharing. And Molly shows how one act of kindness can make a world of difference.

Jon J Muth’s warm, compassionate stories and light-filled pictures are tinged with the wisdom of Zen. Whether young or old, we all learn from one another in the most surprising ways . . .
