I absolutely loved this Tibetan folktale! What a great story! I particularly liked the emphasis on kindness to animals. Only one part of the story was a bit unclear--Jinpa's age. He's described in the text as a "boy", yet he's old enough to be married later in the story. Maybe "boy" means teenager in this case? Aside from that, I loved the tale's twists and turns. I also enjoyed the pictures, particularly the colorful clothing and the unusual hats. I must have a copy of this for my collection!
