This is a collection of Buddhist folk-tales illustrated in the style of the world's oldest printed book - gold on indigo.

This was a fun book with one page budda stories. My favorite was the one about when to open your mouth and when to keep it closed. A turtle tries to go with his goose friends, hes holding a stick in his mouth. And the Geese are holding on to the stick flying. The turtle tries to yell at some kids and let goes of the stick, so he falls to his death. Very heavy!! ha I didn't expect the turtle to die, after the stories there are little morals, after the turtle story the moral is stated as "know when to keep your mouth shut" ( )

a. Summary: Folk tales that represent a moral message fill each page. The left page is a single tale with a moral theme clearly written at the bottom. The right page is dedicated to the art. The art is from 600 A.D. Buddhist sutra and it is made with pen, ink and sometimes mouse whiskers.
b. Review: I could not put this book down. The tales were ageless and each page had a special moral lesson. The animals involved acted similar to how they are portrayed in our culture. This book contains many positive messages and I recommend it as a read aloud. I am going to buy this book it is great.
c. School Use: I would use this in my classroom as a read aloud book. Using the artwork would be great too. Have the students recreate this ancient style; they could trace the characters and make up stories of their own with moral themes.
