The 17th-century Japanese poet Matsuo Basho practically invented the haiku. He's most famous for his travel journals.

But how did he come to be such a traveler in the first place? This delightful volume — written entirely in haiku and illustrated with vibrant hand-painted scenes taken directly from the poet's written travelogues — tells the true story of Basho’s decision to abandon his comfortable city life and of the five great journeys he then took through the length and breadth of Japan.

Suitable for 9+
