About the Author

Dominique Townsend received her doctorate from Columbia University specializing in Tibetan Buddhism and culture. She has traveled extensively in the Himalayas and lived in Tibetan Buddhist communities, and she currently serves as Head of Interpretation and Innovation for the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan. She lives with her husband and young son in Brooklyn, New York.
Tenzin Norbu was born in Dolpo, a rugged region of Nepal on the Tibetan border, and hails from a lineage of painters dating back more than four hundred years. He mixes the tangka genre with creative and novel images of the Himalayan and Tibetan landscapes. The illustrator of four children's books, his work has appeared in National Geographic and the feature film Himalaya and is part of private collections such as that of Leila Hadley Luce. His work has also been featured in major exhibitions in Paris and New York. A resident of Kathmandu, he returns for several months each year to Dolpo, where he plays an active role in the change and continuity of village life.

Reviews

"I love this story. It speaks to my heart, reminds me of my purpose and inspires me. The illustrations are simple, ethereal and beautiful."--Gina Bates Brown, author of Zen and Bodhi's Snowy Day

Tenzin Norbu's out-and-out amazing paintings will delight and inspire even very young readers."--Kerry Lee MacLean, author of Moody Cow Meditates
"This beautifully illustrated adaptation of a Buddhist story will delight parents and children as they discuss the many feelings children experience. The focus is on finding compassion but importantly it recognizes a range of feelings children experience, from anger to excitement and happiness. The book is a lovely vehicle for parents and children to talk about feelings and getting along with others."--Tovah P. Klein, PhD, Director, Barnard College Center for Toddler Development
"Clear, direct writing makes Shantideva's teachings accessible and meaningful, making this a strong jumping-off point for readers eager to explore Buddhist teachings in greater depth."--Publishers Weekly
"In the simple, compassionate language akin to other Buddhist works, this insightful book offers spiritual teachings, practical advice, and an entertaining story, all at once. Concrete examples root abstract concepts in everyday life to provide wisdom for children and adults alike."--Foreword Reviews
