A person kneels before a duck to reflect upon the troubles and joys of life, and offers thanksgivings and expressions of hope. The person is praying...

This collection of prayers and drawings from Michael Leunig is full of gentle humour and joyous grace. Celebrating the ritual of connection, transformation and love that is prayer, it offers consolation and inspiration, gently encouraging readers to develop an awareness of their inner life and reminding us of the potential of the spiritual in navigating the unpredictability of this life.

I will have to buy another one! I gave this away.


Lovely to have Leunig in one book and I will replace this promptly, having given it away almost as soon as it arrived!

Warm and thought provoking


I keep this wonderful little book to hand and have given it as a gift to two special friends. And will give it to more I suspect.



The perfect gift for special friends


I rarely touch a book but this book is special, I wanted it. It makes me happy reading it, makes me think, the words are meaningful and touching. Simple to read and I love the creative cartoon. A perfect gift for anyone.

Beautifully Reflective


It is so beautiful I bought an additional copy to take to a friend in the UK. I also gave it to a friend whose husband had recently died - and to my brother - it was a birthday gift. It has a wide range of audience, my grandkids enjoy me reading parts of it to them.



Words that touch your soul....beautiful thoughts to comfort


A great gift for anyone needing comfort & consolation especially in times of sadness, grief or depression
