2007 Nautilus Book Awards finalistChildren are introduced to love, compassion, and patience in this story of Tsi Tsi, a curious mouse who meets a friendly Buddha while looking for a late night snack. The Buddha lives in a temple in Tsi Tsi’s house, and while Tsi Tsi shares the sweets and fruits the family has left, the Buddha teaches his small friend the great importance of simple acts of kindness and forgiveness. At the end of their lessons, Tsi Tsi spends a day living by these values, even going so far as to befriend a cat. Richly illustrated, this tender tale of simple truths is fitting for families of all spiritualities.
