In this charming and accessible picture book, Ian Lendler and Xanthe Bouma offer a heart-warming account of the childhood of the Buddha. A spoiled young prince, Siddhartha got everything he ever asked for, until he asked for what couldn’t be given—happiness. Join Little Sid as he sets off on a journey of discovery and encounters mysterious wise-folk, terrifying tigers, and one very annoying mouse. With Lendler’s delightful prose and Bouma’s lyrical artwork, Little Sid weaves traditional Buddhist fables into a classic new tale of mindfulness, the meaning of life, and an awakening that is as profound today as it was 2,500 years ago.
Ian Lendler is the author of the acclaimed Stratford Zoo graphic novel series and the picture books Undone Fairy Tale, Saturday, and One Day a Dot. He is at one with the universe, but only when eating pizza. He lives near San Francisco, California.
Xanthe Bouma is an illustrator who has enriched a variety of comics, games, and books with colorful magic - including the graphic novel 5 Worlds. Based in Southern California, Xanthe draws inspiration from cooking good food, napping with cats, and exploring the local beachside.
