This past-life story of the Buddha explains why we can see the image of a rabbit
on the face of the moon. When the god Sakra tested four animals, only the rabbit
showed true compassion and selfless generosity.
In this exciting adaptation of the tale, Sakra assumes a frightening form ~ half tiger, half crocodile. During their jungle adventures, the selfish failings of the fox, monkey, and weasel are humorously reveales.
illustrations bring the story magically to life. It's delightful to read aloud. For ages 5~10.
