In this powerful parable that explores the impact of paying it forward, a young girl named Mai inspires a chain of events that brings good things back to her.

When you do a good deed, it will come back to you. Mai loves feeding the caged birds near the temple but dreams that one day she’ll see them fly free. Then she meets a young girl named Thu, and shares the joy of feeding the birds with her. This sets a chain of good deeds in motion that radiates throughout her village and beyond.

Set in Vietnam, Roseanne Thong’s inspiring story is elegantly illustrated with watercolour on wood by Eujin Kim Neilan.

Includes author’s note explaining the Buddhist concepts of karma and samsara, or the wheel of life.
