Synopsis: What is orange? What is pink? What is white? 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. In 12 vivid poems, O’Neill explores and celebrates colors, showing how each one can be heard, touched, smelled, and seen.

John Wallner’s lavish illustrations, added to the book upon its reissue in 1989, perfectly complement O’Neill’s rich, rhythmic language. Children, parents, educators, and librarians continue to be engaged by this book, a true adventure in poetry and color.

Mary O’Neill’s Hailstones and Halibut Bones was published in 1961, becoming an instant classic.

John Wallner is the award-winning illustrator of more than 30 books for children.

From the Hardcover edition.

From the Publisher: "Long-time readers of Hailstones and Halibut Bones who thought it was beyond improving are in for a treat. John Wallner's brilliant colors have added new richness to Mary O'Neill's wonderful word palette." -- Jim Trelease, Reading Tree Productions.

"Originally published in 1961, this book of poetry has become a classic in the field of children's literature... For each color, there is the sound, the feel, the taste, the smell, and the relationship of that color to another." -- Ohioana Quarterly.

A Child Study Children's Book Committee: Children's Book of the Year.
