Milo Walking: A Picture Book (Hardcover)

By James Howe, Sakika Kikuchi (Illustrator)


Usually Available in 2-5 Days
From James Howe, the bestselling author of Bunnicula, comes a beautiful picture book story about looking, observing, and finding wonder in the things that we walk right past every day—featuring full-color illustrations by Sakika Kikuchi.

Every morning, Milo goes walking with his mother. There are so many things to see.

While Milo was sleeping, the rain left a puddle for him to find. “Hello, Milo,” he says to the boy in the puddle.

When Milo listens closely, he hears bees. They have a lot to say.

The tree in the park looks sad today. “It’s okay,” Milo whispers. “I will see you tomorrow and you will be happy.”

Each day is full of possibilities when Milo goes walking: new things to observe, old things to see in a new way, the magical “maybes” of his imagination—and what we might find tomorrow.
James Howe wrote his first book, Bunnicula, for fun. He has tried to bring the same spirit of playfulness and discovery to all the books he has written since. These include picture books such as Brontorina and Horace and Morris But Mostly Dolores and the beginning-reader series Pinky and Rex and Houndsley and Catina. He is also the author of The Misfits and Totally Joe, as well as numerous sequels to Bunnicula. Howe lives with his husband in an old house just north of New York City.
Sakika Kikuchi is a Japanese illustrator who has loved picture books and stories since her childhood. After studying graphic design at Tama Art University in Tokyo, she worked as an in-house designer for a few years. Then she lived in the UK for two years to complete her MA in children’s book illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, graduating in 2018. She now lives in Japan, where she continues drawing.
