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 O’Neill’s whimsical poems.”

From the Publisher:

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.

About the Author:

MARY O'NEILL knew from childhood that she wanted to be a writer. She began her career as an advertising copywriter and after becoming a partner in her own agency, she moved to New York. There she started to write children's books for Doubleday, of which Hailstones and Halibut Bones is the most famous.

JOHN WALLNER is the award-winning illustrator of more than thirty books for children. His many awards and honors include several ALA Notables, the Certificate of Excellence from the American Institute of Graphic Excellence(1080), and the American Writers award for best illustrator (1977).
