Kuan Yin

The Princess Who Became the Goddess of Compassion

With intricate illustrations reminiscent of Chinese paper cuts, the origin story of a beloved Buddhist saint is reimagined for a new audience. Princess Ling’s beloved sister, Princess Miao Shan, does not want to marry and rule her father’s kingdom, instead wishing to pursue spirituality and find ways to bring love and peace to all living beings. When the king attempts to sabotage her, Miao Shan flees, devastating Ling, until she discovers the truth her sister always understood: that love conquers all.
