Cool Melons - Turn to Frogs! The life and poems of Issa, a master of the Japanese art of haiku are presented in picture book format. A simple narrative account of the poet's life is interspersed with more than thirty examples of his haiku in translation, set alongside colour illustrations and pages framed by traditional Japanese calligraphy. An afterword explains the format of the haiku and encourages the reader to write their own.
