A great book about anger, friendship, letting go, forgiveness, and life overall. The illustrations are great, they are extremely well done in water color. I’m such a big fan of water color drawings for children’s books. They just add more life to the story. This is the collector’s edition of Zen Shorts. Collector’s editions are usually limited and they don’t last long.
