Three classic Zen stories that abound with enlightenment and love.

“Michael,” said Karl. “There's a really big bear in the backyard.”

This is how three children meet Stillwater, a giant panda who moves into the neighborhood and tells amazing tales. To Addie he tells a story about the value of material goods. To Michael he pushes the boundaries of good and bad. And to Karl he demonstrates what it means to hold on to frustration. With graceful art and simple stories that are filled with love and enlightenment, Jon J Muth — and Stillwater the bear — present three ancient Zen tales that are sure to strike a chord in everyone they touch.
