Wonderful but Disappointing

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

From the very beginning this book's wonderful plot and writing style pulled me in. I was delighted . . . until I reached the descriptions of Buddhist philosophy. How disappointing to read of the main characters' desires to follow those ideas! The rest of the book is so well-written and inviting. Be careful of allowing your younger children to read this story independently. Read it together, if you think it should be introduced to your child, and be sure to discuss the Buddhism that is obvious in the story line.
