Siddhartha Gautama lived 2,500 years ago, but the effects of his life are still shaping the world today. The son of a king, he left a world of wealth and privilege to seek a better lifeand he found it in the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. After he had found what he was seeking, he did not retire to a quiet place where he could spend all his time in meditation. Instead, he devoted himself to sharing what he had discovered with others.His followers grew over the years, and during the centuries that have followed his death, his teachings have spread around the globe. Today, Siddhartha Gautama is known by countless millions as the Buddha. His wisdom and compassion are legendary, and many have followed the path that he identified, hoping to reach enlightenment as he did.

Mona Gedney has been a teacher for thirty-three years and has published sixteen books and numerous short stories. She has a deep-rooted interest in people and places, and her own reading includes essays, history, biography, and travel, as well as fiction, particularly mysteries. She lives in West Lafayette, Indiana.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7–Each of these titles offers a fluid and lively retelling of the basic story, including insight into the broader context of the times, an introduction to the teachings of each figure, and a recounting of the facts that most believers would assent to. In the case of the Buddha, many American youngsters will have little to no background knowledge and thus Gedney's unified retelling provides a sound place to begin. Whiting's job is more difficult: because the Moses story is more familiar, this account may seem more like just another Bible story. Whiting is also less rigorous than Gedney in frequently reminding readers that the incidents related are the testimony of disciples and can't be verified by other sources. Both books feature five short chapters, each of which is followed by a one-page FYInfo essay about related issues. Illustrations are colorful, with captions that add to the text. While neither title is an essential purchase, both are attractive and inviting, with Buddha more likely to fill a need in most libraries than Moses.–Coop Renner, Hillside Elementary, El Paso, TX
