These twenty tales have been drawn from famous legends concerning the former lives of the Buddha. beloved by children and adults alike, they tell of people and animals moved to act of sacrifice by the noble example of their fellow creatures. The flavor is often suggestive of Esop, asare the lessons that are so subtly and keenly conveyed.
Presented in a simplified narrative, the tales maintain the magical and timeless beauty of their Far Eastern origins. The stories are ideal for reading to children, as they tell og highly dramatic adventures that are resolved by non-violent and compassionate means. Challenging circumstances bring forth courage and the capacity to love, opening the way to solutions against seemingly impossible odds. This book will also be coveted for its exquisite illustrations by the well-known illustrator H. Willebeel Le Mair.
