The Eight-Year-Old Legend Book

This collection of stories is based upon tales told by the Buddha to his monks 2,500 years ago. Isabel Wyatt’s enchanting retelling conjures up a rich world of Eastern legend, ruled by courtly kings and sages and populated by brave princes, faithful elephants, and cunning monkeys. The stories tell of great adventures and heroes, of danger and courage, and, most important, of how wisdom and thoughtfulness always triumph over selfishness and greed.

The Eight-Year-Old Legend Book was compiled for children around the age of eight—children who are embarking increasingly on their own adventures in life and learning to become smart and courageous.
