Since its original publication in 1961, "Hailstones And Halibut Bones," Mary O'Neill's renowned work of poetry about the colors of the spectrum, has become a modern children's classic. This newly illustrated edition features lavish full-color illustrations from an award-winning artist, yet the poems have been left intact with all the powerful rhythm and rich language of the original.
"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."
"John Wallner has added rich drawings for this new edition, full of intense yellows, blues, orchids, and oranges. They complement O'Neill's whimsical poems."
"After more than twenty-five years, the poems, like colors, still sing . . . Kudos to Doubleday for letting Hailstones and Halibut Bones continue to live."
