Stillwater, Zen Panda

How do you appeal to kids? John Muth tells Scott Simon on NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday that you don’t talk down to them; “children are as completely capable of intuiting wisdom as adults are.”

The third book in his series about Stillwater, the Zen Buddhist panda, Zen Ghosts, came out last month. All the books in the series rose on Amazon sales rankings as a result of the NPR feature.

In addition to the interview, you can hear Scott Simon read one of Stillwater’s stories on the NPR site.
