The cat who taught zen

£18.99

This is the tale of a cat who longed for peace, acceptance, and a way to make sense of the world. One day he hears of a solitary ancient pine, deep in the maple forests that shroud the valley, under the boughs of which infinite wisdom can be found. So begins a journey of discovery, and along the way he meets a vivid cast of animals, from a curious hare to a chattering monkey, a tiresome tortoise to a terrifying tiger, each with their own stories to tell. But it is only through a surprise encounter with a playful kitten that he realizes the journey has never been about a tree.

Description

Following the phenomenal international success of Big Panda and Tiny Dragon and The Journey, James Norbury’s latest book introduces readers to a very special cat on a remarkable adventure.

“I’ve learnt that what we want is seldom what we need, and what we need is almost never what we want”

This is the tale of a cat wise in the ways of zen, journeying to discover a fabled ancient pine, under which infinite wisdom may be found.

Along the way he meets a vivid cast of animals: from an anxious monkey and a tortoise tired of life, to a tiger struggling with anger, a confused wolf cub and a covetous crow.

But it’s a surprise encounter with a playful kitten, that forces the cat to question everything . . .

Told in a gentle, calming style, The Cat Who Taught Zen introduces a new cast of characters for readers of all ages to fall in love with, offering timeless wisdom wrapped up into a tale of beguiling beauty.
