Sid weaves the traditional tale of Siddhartha, the Buddha-to-be with the story of Sid, an everyman who finds himself waking up amid the reality of work and family life in the modern world. Returning to the standard tale with careful consideration of the relationships in Buddha’s life—to his wife, parents, and child—Feng’s narrative embodies the Mahayana perspective of living one’s enlightenment in the world. Beautifully told in poetic prose, Sid teaches that the key to the story of the Buddha’s life is that the story could be about any of us. Includes beautiful black and white illustrations, created especially for this book....

    This is quite a striking and beautiful tale. I love the minimalism and pace as well. Not a wasted word...how rare, how splendid.

    This book is worthy of a review, though I am unworthy to write one. Feng uses simply the right words and stitches them together to form a tapestry of life. Your life. Her life. My life. Our lives. The lesson becomes vividly clear to me when Sid, “…hadn’t planned on the beauty of this broken world…never could he have imagined.” This book makes me feel like I might actually understand something important about life. In the words of another favorite poet, Thich Nhat: “Waking up this morning, I smile. 24 brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment."I recommend the book, Sid, by Anita N Feng. If you do not know where you are, you will find yourself in this story.
