Ten Phun, Square­one Pub­lish­ers, Soft­cover $9.95 (64pp), 978-0-7570-0447-6

Born in Ti­bet, loses par­ents, aunt ships him off to a monastery, China exiles him to In­dia where he de­cides to sing, rap, act, and write in the hills of Dharam­sala. Ho hum, Ten Phun, get back to us when you have some­thing to write about. Ah, but the huge monastery was lonely un­til a small li­brary of Snow White, The Ad­ven­tures of Pinocchio, The Frog Prince, Beauty and the Beast, and other fairy tales—all trans­lated into Ti­betan—ap­peared in the ab­bot’s store­room and sud­denly the world grew warmer and ever so much larger.
