Publisher's Summary

Around the beginning of the common era, Indian Buddhists began to collect fables, or jataka tales, illuminating various human virtues and foibles - from kindness, cooperation, loyalty and self-discipline on the one hand to greed, pride, foolishness, and treachery on the other. Instead of populating these stories with people, they cast the animals of their immediate environment in the leading roles - which may have given the tales a universal appeal that helped them travel around the world, surfacing in the Middle East as Aesop's fables and in various other guises throughout East and Southeast Asia, Africa, Russia, and Europe. Author and painter Mark McGinnis has collected over 40 of these hallowed popular tales and retold them in vividly poetic yet accessible language, their original Buddhist messages firmly intact.

    "Caution: listening might make you become a vegetar"

    Nice stories with good moral lessons. Well read, good performance. If I still had small children; I think I would get both the paper and audible version. I think a lot of young children would enjoy following along in the book while it is being read. Then you have a good opportunity to discuss each story with your children. They are all short so maybe a good bedtime activity.
    I thing most adults will also find most of the stories fun.

    My 4 year old was entranced by the stories, and so was I! It's a great way to introduce your kids to the way of the path.
