Publisher's Synopsis
This rhymed version makes the story enjoyable for modern English-speaking children ages five to ten.

Queen Videhi of Rajagaha asks the Buddha to teach four hundred children about the way of awareness and love. In reply, the Buddha recounts his previous life experience as a plumeria tree. This tree painfully witnesses the cruel deceptions of a heron upon forty fish and a cautious, crafty crab. Though helpless to intervene, the compassionate tree takes vows with far-reaching consequences.
