A spoiled young prince, Siddhartha got everything he ever asked for, until he asked for what couldn’t be given ― happiness.

Though not historically accurate, it gives a great little insight into the world of the Buddha and makes the idea of happiness a more understandable concept for younger readers. I would recommend this to parents who would like to introduce them to concepts of Buddhism at a young age.

A relevant picture book for our times. Little Sid learns early on that money can't buy happiness, and he goes off on his own to find Happiness with a capital H. I found the telling interesting and direct, without being sticky sweet. And the illustrations are dreamlike and beautiful.
