That interview ignited her, and she has traveled to Burma, China, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand to research her book topics. Born in Australia, but grew up in many other countries like England, Brunei, Hong Kong and China. Went to China and studied traditional Chinese painting for three years.

    A beautiful picture book with stunning art work and a meaningful and inspirational story. A simplified version of a the classic tale Siddhartha, suitable for children ... move on to the beautifully written Herman Hesse version when they are older

  • By Patrick Ryan on 3 September 2013

    This is a very special book, one of my daughter's favorite. The first thing you will notice is the format - it opens "top-to-bottom" a bit like traditional scriptural leaves. The illustrations are lovely and the text a perfect mix of story-for-all-ages and spiritual teaching. Wonderful - deserves a special place in every home.

  • By Dawn Hart on 19 September 2015

    Beautifully illustrated. This is a very simple story of how Prince Siddhartha became 'Buddha'. It is a great introduction to Buddhism for young children. My son is 5 and has loved me reading it to him since he was three. He loves the illustrations and always has so many questions whilst we are reading it.
