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.

His commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than forty years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world.

      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.

        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.

          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.
