Description

In this adventurous retelling of the classic Tibetan tale of the power of faith, a young man fails to obtain a sacred relic for his dying mother and deceivingly brings her a tooth from the skeleton of a dog.

This vivid version humorously recreates the wily son's schemes. It movingly conveys how the mother's strong faith has the power to fulfill her dreams. The result is a suspenseful story that captivates and inspires readers of all ages. The illustrations, which transport the reader to Tibet and India, are a miracle of imagination themselves.
