Product Description

About the Author

Demi became fascinated with Buddhism at the age of three, when she chose a small golden statue of the Buddha at a five-and-dime store. At age twenty-one she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study art in India, where she walked in the footsteps of the Buddha. She has practiced Buddhism for twenty years, along with her husband, Tze-si Huang. In researching the art for "Buddha," she drew from Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Burmese, and Indonesian paintings, sculptures, and sutra illustrations, particularly Pahari and Chamba Indian miniature paintings. For the story of the Buddha's life, Demi relied on her library of more than 82,000 books, most of which relate to Buddhism.
Demi is the author and illustrator of many books, including "The Empty Pot," "The Magic Tapestry," "The Firebird," and "The Magic Gold Fish," She lives in Carnation, Washington.

The book is beautifully illustrated and the content is suitable for 8 to 10 year olds. The problem is that the ebook does not work well on either an iPad mini or even a kindle fire HD as it is impossible to zoom the illustrations.

My 6 year-old grandson had already borrowed this book many times from his school library, so I thought he'd enjoy having his own book. He loves the story and the illustrations are beautiful. A great buy.
