Overview

A Tibetan woodcutter dreams of exploring the world, but is too busy with his life to ever leave his valley. After he dies, he is taken on a journey through the cosmos and all the places on Earth as he makes choices that lead him to a new life. First published as part of the debut list for Barefoot Books in 1993, this gentle and inspiring look at life after death is just as relevant today.

Editorial Reviews

Horn Book
A perfect blend of story and picture. The impact of its peaceful message will reverberate long after the last page is read.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
There are many good books that talk generally about the great mystery no one understands. This book gives a view of reincarnation and the beauty of life's diversity. It was inspired by the author's reading of the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

Such an amazing book! It makes my 7y/o sons 'eyes water' as he would say, each time we read it. Any book that can reach deep into the emotions of a child is a must have in my opinion.

I can remember reading this book non-stop when I was 3, 4, and 5 years old. So much, in fact, that it finally fell apart from constant opening and closing. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and the story is one that has stayed with me my whole life. I would suggest this book to all children who love to read and all adults who enjoy beautiful picture books such as this one.
