From the Author

The Dalai Lama is a man of compassion and illumination.
I wrote this book for young readers, but I hope that adults will also read about the Dalai Lama. He is a man living fully in compassion and kindness. I have learned much from him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating interview-based biography 29 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I've read several of Whitney Stewart's bios, and come to realize she is a highly conscientious biographer who bases her bios on iterviews with her subjects. Few biographers for children bother with interviews; most glean highlights about theis subjects' lives from secondary materials.
In contrst, Stewart interviews her subjects. She interviewed the dalai lama for this book and it shows in the quality and quantity of details she presents. For example, she mentions a heartbreaking childhood memory of the dalai lama's: When he was a child, a poor couple passed their house with a dead child. The Dalai Lama's mother offered to help them bury the child, but they were so desperately hungry that--well, you can guess what they were intending, in their desperation. Instead, the dalai lama's family fed and helped them.
That's the kind of detail a biographer doesn't come up with easily--not unless they have their subject before them, telling them their first hand story.
I am an adult reader, and feel the book, like all her bios, are appropriate for both kids and adults. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Dali Lhama 17 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great biography about the Dali Lhama and Tibet. It is easy to read and very instresting. A good amount of vocabulary for 7-10 year olds. Whitney Stewart makes it much easier to understand about the Dali Lhama and what is happening in Tibet. END
