Ten Thousand Days of Summer: the story of the boy who would be Buddha
The first of a trilogy on the life of the Buddha for Children and Adults age 10+
Born a Prince, pampered and protected, son and heir to a kingdom and fortune in ancient India, Siddhartha led an enviable lifestyle… or did he? What else could he possibly want from life? And would he ever be free to find it? A bewitching story of prophetic dreams, predictions, fortune telling, flying mystics, floating objects, visions and fabulous riches, this is also about the realities of what it means to be human. As we accompany the young Prince on his magical journey towards his inevitable decision to leave home, we are faced with our own dilemmas and choices.
“In her wonderful little book, Andrea Willson has brought the tale of the Buddha into the modern, international arena, re-telling it with the magic and wonder that has captivated audiences over the centuries. Andrea is indeed a talented storyteller.”
