Kundun The Golden Cat


The Vision Walk






Book Cover

Anna and the Animals

Coat of Praise

A modern day “Aesop's” fable, Kundun the Golden Cat is a story for children of all ages, in step with the new values of our times. It is attuned to “giving” rather than “getting,” and tells of the happiness and pleasure that result when possessions are shared.

In the tradition of other lovable story-book animals—Babar, Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, and Pooh Bear—the tale is co-authored by Beverly Russell and Benjamin Beardwood, with illustrations by Sushiela.

Available online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
