The most important thing any of us can do to help a child is to help her have the courage to be true to her deepest self. Spirituality at its core – whatever the path or school – is about helping us to discover our true identity. Therefore spiritual guidance is the single most important gift we can give our children. I commend Shelley and her contribution with Chocolate Sauce.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

"If we are to insure a peaceful future for our world, I believe it's important to foster positive values like compassion, kindness, and love in our children's minds from an early age. Certainly, books like these can help us do that. I'm sure they'll delight readers young and old. I commend Sally for her efforts." 

Matthieu Ricard:

"While outer conditions certainly exert a great influence on our well-being, it is the mind that allows the flourishing of genuine happiness. This can only arise when the mind and, consequently, the way in which we relate to the world are transported and infused with wisdom and altruistic love, producing a deep sense of fulfillment.

Sally Devorsine’s stories inspire the reader to travel along the rewarding path of inner transformation, one which will better enable us to shape the world."

Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche (Bhutan):

"I'm am surprised that such a bad start (my naughtiness) could lead to such a great result (these books)! And I hope that as people read them again and again, the benefit of my naughtiness will just increase and increase" - about Now I Know That I It's Better to Face My Monsters
