Product Details


A 2018 Cybils Awards finalist

“A captivating story. . . The reader learns of Siddartha’s trials and triumphs, a bit about the political world in which he lives, and how his wisdom became the basis for a religion. The illustration captures the reality of life in ancient Nepal/India, and the divinity of the budding Buddha.” — Stephanie Tournas, Robbins Library, in Youth Services Book Reviews

“This title is an accessible, graphic introduction to the life and teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. . . Artwork is polished. . . This would be a high interest addition to biography and Dewey sections lacking information on world religions.” — Jenny Gapp, Teacher-Librarian, in School Library Connection

“This biography has an adventurous, mythic feel yet never strays from relating the central tenets of Buddhism. The art is equally mythic, blending exquisite colors; beautiful, ornate line work; a clean narrative; and expressive characters in a way that evokes distant lands and times without being unfamiliar. Those interested in history, mythology, and spirituality, or anyone looking for an introduction to the Buddha and his teachings will enjoy this book.” — Lucy Roehrig, Ann Arbor Dist. Lib., in Library Journal

“The illustrations are beautiful, perfectly encapsulating the emotions of their scenes. The characters are complex, the story is always fascinating, and it is great as a way of teaching newer generations about the origins of this religion that can now be found around the world.” –Benedict Hutchinson, A Goblin Reviews Graphic Novels 
“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature.” — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom
