In this biography, exquisitely illustrated in the Indian miniature painting tradition, young readers learn about Guru Nanak's life, his spiritual journeys in which he spread his divine message from the Himalayas to present-day Sri Lanka to Mecca, and his teachings as expressed through his daily life and his poetry. Born into a humble Hindu family, Nanak was an extraordinary child who from a very young age questioned the rituals of religion and the ways of the world around him. He grew up to be a great spiritual teacher and revolutionary for his times. His attempt to define a universal humanity resulted in Sikhism a religion that embraces everyone. Singh's version of the guru's life is based on the janam sakhis (birth stories) as well as the Sikh scriptures.
