Barbara Soros draws on the ancient wisdom of the Tibetan people to narrate the touching story of a young boy named Tenzin and the wounded musk deer he encounters in the woods. By paying heed to his dreams and to the needs of the animal he has rescued, Tenzin is able to cure the deer. But soon he discovers that he must learn one of the most important lessons of all: how to love deeply enough to let go. The lush, intricate illustrations evoke the emotional depth of this tale that encourages the Buddhist virtues of nonviolence, compassion and the rejection of materialism.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-Against an intricately illustrated backdrop of rugged peaks, scrolled clouds, and animals brushed with tiny strokes unfurls a tale of compassion, healing, and the guiding power of dreams. In the mountains of Tibet, a land where harshness meets exquisite beauty, lives Tenzin, a boy who is kind and wise beyond his years. When he finds a wounded musk deer, Jampa, he asks for guidance and he receives it, both from his inner voice (that hears the deer speak) and his dreams. Tenzin learns the art and science of healing through his experience with Jampa. Excessive detail makes this tender, spiritual parable somewhat dense and wordy. Nevertheless, the story flows smoothly. Each complex, gouache landscape is framed with a finely painted border of red with yellow filigree. The paintings are vibrant, expressive, and well suited to the story. While the book is lovely, it will have limited appeal. The afterword discusses compassion, dreams, healing and Buddhism.
