For ages 6 and up. Paperback, 163 pages.
Sarah Conover's collection of traditional Buddhist tales leads us to the kind of implicit understanding of ourselves and others that only stories can provide. Over and over this marvelous book tells us, "Let go of your anger, your fear, your greedy desire. Embrace gladness. Follow the path." The stories form a wondrous pageant of elephants, monkeys, monks, and men working through foolishness toward wisdom and joy.
