Publisher's Synopsis

THE BIG PANDA AND TINY DRAGON AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR JAMES NORBURY TELLS THE STORY OF THE CAT WHO LEARNED HOW TO BE MORE ZEN . . .

"I've learnt that what we want is seldom what we need, and what we need is almost never what we want"

This is the tale of a cat wise in the ways of zen, journeying to discover a fabled ancient pine, under which infinite wisdom may be found.

Along the way he meets a vivid cast of animals: from an anxious monkey and a tortoise tired of life, to a tiger struggling with anger, a confused wolf cub and a covetous crow.

But it's a surprise encounter with a playful kitten, that forces the cat to question everything . . .

Told in a gentle, calming style, The Cat Who Taught Zen introduces a new cast of characters for readers of all ages to fall in love with, offering timeless wisdom wrapped up into a tale of beguiling beauty.
