Little Sid: The Tiny Prince Who Became Buddha

by Ian Lendler and Xanthe Bouma.New York: First Second, 2018

A simplified, somewhat romanticized version of Siddhartha Gautama's live, abstract thoughts and contributions, and his journey to realizing that happiness was in being in the moment. This is a hybrid book where the story is told in simple prose text and people speaking dialogue in text balloons.
