Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

In this charming and accessible picture book, Ian Lendler and Xanthe Bouma offer a heart-warming account of the childhood of the Buddha.

A spoiled young prince, Siddhartha got everything he ever asked for, until he asked for what couldn't be given­-happiness.

Join Little Sid as he sets off on a journey of discovery and encounters mysterious wise-folk, terrifying tigers, and one very annoying mouse.

With Lendler's delightful prose and Bouma's lyrical artwork,Little Sid weaves traditional Buddhist fables into a classic new tale of mindfulness, the meaning of life, and an awakening that is as profound today as it was 2,500 years ago.

Review Quote*"Whether used as a folktale, a conversation starter about core values, or even as an introduction to Buddhism in a unit on world religions, kids will respond to Sid's sympathetic cartoon persona, his irreverent asides, and his quest. This is a good choice for sharing either one-on-one or during storytime."-Booklist
