Counter Since it's original publication in 1961, Hailstones and Halibut Bones, Mary O'Neill's renowned work of poetry about the colors of the spectrum, has become modern children's classic. This new edition, which features lavish illustrations and a fresh design, is sure to be welcomed not only by children, parents, educators, and librarians who already know and love the book, but also by a whole new generation of readers. Mary O'Neill's imaginative poems have been left in tact with all the powerful rhythm and rich language of the original. And the award-winning, critically acclaimed artist John Wallner has captured the essence of the poems with striking and colorful images.
