A message from the family behind bynature.ca

We take great care when choosing books to recommend. Our standards are high which we hope is evident in our selection. Because of our mindful editing process, competing with mega bookstore corporations is not something we can do.

As an independent, family-owned business we genuinely appreciate the support from thoughtful customers like you. Our value, selection, service and survival depends on your careful consideration when choosing where to shop online. Thank you!

The perfect storybook for children of all ages!

Around the beginning of the common era, Indian Buddhists began to collect fables, or jataka tales, illuminating various human virtues and foibles - from kindness, cooperation, loyalty and self-discipline on the one hand to greed, pride, foolishness, and treachery on the other. Instead of populating these stories with people, they cast the animals of their immediate environment in the leading roles - which may have given the tales a universal appeal that helped them travel around the world, surfacing in the Middle East as Aesop's fables and in various other guises throughout East and Southeast Asia, Africa, Russia, and Europe.

Author and painter Mark McGinnis has collected over forty of these hallowed popular tales and retold them in vividly poetic yet accessible language, their original Buddhist messages firmly intact. Each story is accompanied with a beautifully rendered full-colour painting, making this an equally attractive book for children and adults, whether Buddhist or not, who love fine stories about their fellow wise (and foolish) creatures.

Written by By Mark W. McGinnis.

Hardcover. 112 Pages.
