The Monkey King and other stories

Religions and cultures evolve as they spread. In this enchanting book, three favorite stories have been retold by authors who are familiar with both Buddhist tradition and also with Western culture.

'The Monkey King' is a stirring jungle tale of greed, heroism, and mangoes. 'The Lion and the Jackal' teaches that friendship is built on trust and generosity. In 'Siddhartha and the Swan', the young prince helps his cousin learn about kindness to animals.
