The first book in the Tashi series of daring adventures and tall tales about magic, courage and the triumph of brains over brawn.
‘Well, it was like this. Come and I’ll tell you about the time I tricked the last dragon of all.’
So says the daring hero, Tashi, in his first book of adventures. Tashi comes from a place very far away. He escaped from a war lord and flew to this country on a swan. He’s as brave as he’s clever, and he tells the best stories
Tashi books are ideal for young readers, or for reading aloud, and they’re loved all over the world.
Created by the much loved, multi-award winning author/illustrator team of Anna and Barbara Fienberg and Kim Gamble.
Anna and Barbara Fienberg write the Tashi stories together. When Anna was a child, Barbara read bedtime stories to her and they would travel to all the secret places in the world, through books. They started making up the Tashi stories when Barbara remembered how, when she was a child, she used to tell tall stories, creative fibs...whoppers! And kids would crowd around, dying to hear her latest tale. Anna and Barbara talked about a character like her - someone who told fantastic stories - and over many cups of tea they cooked up Tashi.
