As his master paints a masterpiece, which has been commissioned by the village temple, a little cat watches. The artist draws a snail, a swan, a horse -- all the animals who received the blessing of the Buddha. At last, moved by compassion, the artist takes up his brush and draws a cat, and is rewarded for his act of love by a special Buddhist miracle.
This timeless fable of a cat who changes the life of a poor Japanese artist has become a classic since its first publication in 1930 -- and this newly illustrated edition brings to life the magic and wonder of the Buddhist legends that the painter draws.
