Read full description of the books:
“Once,” says the old man to the animals, “a hunter lived in this forest. Your grandparents lived in fear of him. The twang of his bow sent them running. Then something happened to change that forever . . . ” In this ancient parable from India, a forest-dwelling hunter learns that cruelty has consequences and that compassion has rewards. When the hunter meets the wise man Narada, “Do unto others as they would do unto you” takes on a very concrete meaning as the sage leads the hunter on an imagined journey in which the hunter becomes the hunted. When the hunter realizes how his actions affect other living things, he has a change of heart and begins to live in peace with the animals he once pursued. Kosa Ely adapts this traditional Indian tale into an inviting narrative that presents the universal golden rule in a new and appealing way. Anna Johansson’s richly detailed illustrations evoke the animal kingdom and enchanted forests with fine lines and luminous colors. The Peaceable Forest is the ideal picture book for inspiring young readers to respect life in all its forms.

Read information about the authorI grew up in a family of artists and entrepreneurs, living in the coastal towns of Southern California. I have always loved writing, art, and foreign cultures. By the age of fourteen, I became a dedicated vegetarian and started exploring yoga and eastern philosophy.
My fascination with the art and culture of other people has taken me around the world, exploring diverse cultures in many countries. My most memorable experiences are living in remote villages in India, spending time with indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest, and visiting with the Maori people in New Zealand.
In my travels I find many deep, powerful stories that have been handed down throughout the ages. When I find a story I especially connect with, I contemplate how to retell it for contemporary children in a way that is both entertaining and enlightening.
