It's Halloween, and by the end of the evening Addy, Michael, and Karl have loads of candy treats. However, the fun's not over yet. Their panda friend, Stillwater, has one more surprise waiting for them. A mysterious panda storyteller draws them a story, and when it's finished, the kids are mystified. What happened to Stillwater, and just who was this mysterious storyteller? You'll be left wondering too when you check out this seasonal treat.

The Bottom Line: This gentle Halloween ghost story contains a story within a story that will make the reader think about who they really are. Muth's beautiful artwork in watercolor and ink tell the tale as much as the text. Highly recommended for storytimes for grades 1 - 4. Check out the Author's Note at the end for discussion ideas.

In this beautiful picture book, Stillwater the panda tells a typical Chinese ghost story. In terms of British folklore, we might call the appearance of the missing young woman a changeling or "stock"... an ailing, not-quite-human replacement for a vanished daughter... but in Chinese folklore, it's a ghost story. This is a lovely tale, that unlike the other Stillwater tales, does not undertake to teach us how to live; but like the rest, it causes us to ponder a bit about the nature of life. And in this case, about identity. Was one of the women more "real" than the other, and if so, which one? ( )

I really enjoyed this book as well. Many children love Halloween and a good ghost story. The children share their costumes and costume dilemmas with Stillwater and it reminds him of a good ghost story he wants to share. The story is about a woman who is torn between staying with her family she loves and following the man she loves and wants to be with. In the story she essentially becomes two beings. This story brings up amazing discussions on duality in one's life--Can I be the same "me" with my parents as I am with my friends? Such an interesting concept to discuss and told in such a beautiful way with excellent illustrations. too!

Zen Ghosts uses a framing story about Halloween to introduce a fascinating Zen koan. I enjoy the beautiful watercolor paintings and Stillwater, the anthropomorphic panda who hangs out with kids and stretches the boundaries of their minds. I am curious to find out what interpretation young readers would assign to this story, it would make an excellent classroom discussion. ( )

Halloween is my favorite time of year and I love that it's the backdrop for this edition of Jon J Muth's Zen Stories, Zen Ghosts. The illustrations in this book are the most detailed I've ever seen. One two page spread has a dozen kids trick-or-treating in their neighborhood in the best costumes (my favorite is Micheal in his owl-pirate costume). The best part of this story is the tale, Senjo and Her Soul Are Separated. It left Addy, Micheal, Karl, and myself wondering if there were two different Senjos and two Stillwaters or if our favorite panda was also separated from his soul. Unlike the other two Zen nooks I've read, this book is lacking a life lesson for the children to learn. However, it's not worse off for it. In fact, it might actually be my favorite of the four because I didn't look for an overall meaning to take away from reading it. It was simply a great ghost story. ( )
