Tashi is bold and clever, and tells the best stories ever!
There's a Magnificent Magician with a greedy plan, a haunted house about to go up in flames, ruthless ruffians after a rare orchid, and a quest for the bravest person in the land to face the fire-breathing Red Whiskered Dragon.
'All children should meet Tashi. He can be their mentor on the road to reading, feeding their imaginations with fantastic stories.' Magpies
Tashi, an elflike character who is best friends with a boy named Jack, recounts his adventures in this addition to the long-running Australian series. Tashi's world is filled with monsters, narrow escapes, and characters with names like Wise-as-an-Owl; his exploits, captured in Kelly and Gamble's charming full-color illustrations, include exposing a thieving magician, escaping from a burning haunted house, and encountering a vain dragon. Jack, as much an enthusiastic storyteller as Tashi, sometimes takes the helm, regaling his encouraging Mum and Dad with his own yarns about Tashi during a camping trip (as Tashi takes a nap). In these five chapter-length tales, Tashi and his gentle escapades provide just enough danger to captivate budding fantasy fans. Ages 5 8.
