About the Author


Demi became fascinated with Buddhism at the age of three, when she chose a small golden statue of the Buddha at a five-and-dime store. At age twenty-one she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study art in India, where she walked in the footsteps of the Buddha. She has practiced Buddhism for twenty years, along with her husband, Tze-si Huang. In researching the art for "Buddha," she drew from Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Burmese, and Indonesian paintings, sculptures, and sutra illustrations, particularly Pahari and Chamba Indian miniature paintings. For the story of the Buddha's life, Demi relied on her library of more than 82,000 books, most of which relate to Buddhism.
Demi is the author and illustrator of many books, including "The Empty Pot," "The Magic Tapestry," "The Firebird," and "The Magic Gold Fish," She lives in Carnation, Washington.

Praise For…


"When the Chinese Emperor announces an unusual test to choose an heir-- the child who raises the best flowers from a seed given by the Emperor will be his successor-- Ping, unaccountably, is unable to get his seed to sprout....A lovely story, well told and most attractively presented."--Kirkus Reviews, pointer

"A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as the simplicity of its story."--School Library Journal
