This is a collection of fables (or jataka stories) from Buddhist traditions (so they focus on avoiding being overly proud or greedy, hurting living creatures, etc). They are short and simple, but not boring (the way Grimm's Fairy Tales can be). I think I need to re-read them to catch all of the subtleties I missed the first time, but I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. Also, the physical book (I listened to audio) has some amazing illustrations.
