The Tale of Zen Master Bho Li is the story of an eight-year-old orphan who becomes a beloved Zen Master. Meet the cast of memorable companions who assist him on his captivating life’s journey:

  • The Firethroat – an exotic little bird that saves him from a life threatening circumstance.
  • Soyu Sei – the “Dangerous Granny” whose wise and tender guidance civilizes the feral child he’d become without taming his wild heart.
  • Master Wu – abbot of Silent Thunder Zen Monastery, whose successor he would become.
  • And Master Bho Li’s three most problematic disciples: Sei Wot, Noh Hui, and Wai Mi, from each of whom he learns an important lesson.

The refined talents and carefully crafted illustrations of Aaron Gilmore superbly complement this winsome Zen fable.
