    Love it Well told with large, detailed illustrations, lovely haiku, and a perfect twist at the end

    We checked this out from the library twice before I tracked down a copy to buy The illustrations of the poet foxes in their kimonos are magical and sweet The text is rich enough for multiple analyses The poet Basho lives as a hermit in Japan and gets into a dispute with the local foxes about a cherry tree They challenge him to present one perfect poem in order to win the right to the cherries Mason sees the moral as seeking inspiration rather than honing your craft in a vacuum I think it s about [...]

    The Brothers
    A delightful story about a great Japanese poet who gets into a battle of the haikus with a fox The fox assures him that foxes are the best poets around and if Basho can right a good not even a great poem, the foxes will let him have all the sweet cherries in the tree In the end, Basho realizes that poems should be written for their own sake and foxes have a rather inflated opinion of their poetic abilities.Fabulous illustrations.

    This is one of my favorite choices to read aloud to a classroom of older students I was impressed when the third graders I read it to a few weeks ago knew who Basho was and recognized one of his poems Apparently from one of the Magic Treehouse books.

    A wonderful children s story, written by a former colleague of mine in Japan

    If you write poetry for someone animal, mineral, vegetable or human make sure it s familiar You know, make it relevant And always share A delightful book

    Basho, the greatest Haiku poet in Japan learns to be humble and wins over a fox.

    Really delightful.

    This is a fabulous story I read to Frida at the library I want to go back and check it out so I can reread it.
