Publisher Comments:

Many of todays children face challenges and obstacles far beyond what their parents ever imagined. These 20 thoroughly modern retellings of ancient Buddhist tales give parents a fun, low-pressure way to impart wisdom and moral guidance without preaching. Each story highlights a moral or ethical dilemma that echoes those that children face in their own lives, providing insight and enlightenment that they can use to defuse trying situations. At the conclusion of each story, applicable Buddhist principles are discussed. Featuring engaging characters, enthralling adventures, and modern language that speaks to todays kids, these beautifully illustrated stories can help children relieve stress, attain greater academic and social achievement, and enjoy a more positive outlook on life.

Review:

"Nagaraja, a Scottish Buddhist monk, makes his debut with 20 modern versions of Buddhist tales told in relaxed, straightforward prose. Some feature talking animals, Aesop-style, while others star hapless humans. In one, a rich miser is offered a small bowl of rice by a pauper, a gift which transforms him; in another, a magic stag forgives a human who has betrayed him. The earnest lessons these stories teach are reinforced by standalone morals at the conclusions: 'All too often we open our mouths in anger.... A wise person thinks before they speak, and if they can't say something kind, they keep silent.' Tancredi's illustrations feature the hard-edged, big-eyed characters found in popular children's media, giving the book a slick look at odds with its lofty aspirations. Ages 8 — 10." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
