Beloved by critics and readers alike for nearly 60 years, Mary ONeills timeless childrens book of poetry is a tribute to the many beautiful colors we see around us, and is considered a modern childrens classic. Featuring twelve beautiful poems, and deeply luminous illustrations, Hailstones and Halibut Bones is a perfect poetry addition to any home or classroom library. An exploration in imaginative, evocative verses of the world of color and its relationship to the other senses. The New York Times Book Review (A Top Ten Distinguished Juvenile Book) Has inspired young poets all over the country. Publishers Weekly John Wallner has added rich drawings for this new edition, full of intense yellows, blues, orchids, and oranges. They complement ONeills whimsical poems. People After more than twentyfive years, the poems, like colors, still sing . . . Kudos to Doubleday for letting Hailstones and Halibut Bones continue to live. School Library Journal
