This collection of stories is based upon tales told by the Buddha to his monks 2500 years ago. Isabel Wyatt's enchanting retelling conjures up a rich world of eastern legend, ruled by courtly kings and wise men, + populated by brave princes, faithful elephants + cunning monkeys. The stories tell of great adventures + heroes, of danger + courage, + most importantly of how wisdom + thoughtfulness always triumph over selfishness and greed.
This anthology was compiled with children around the age of eight in mind - children who are embarking on more and more adventures in their own lives, + themselves learning to become clever and brave.
