Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879236760, Paperback)

Unique among Maxwell's books, the 29 stories in this collection have the timeless quality of folk tales. Though the settings are modern, the concerns are as old as humanity, in the traditions of Aesop and the Brothers Grimm.
