Author(s): Anna Fienberg; Kim Gamble (Illustrator)
Tashi has amazing adventures, like the time the Baba Yaga's house blew into the village on the winds of a terrible storm, and when he found a genie and rode on a flying carpet. Tashi has stories about a big smelly giant, a haunted house, and a proud golden phoenix. And he must be very clever when the Book of Spells is stolen, and almost magical when he tries to save the Baron's dog. Tashi's friend Jack loves hearing Tashi's stories, and so do children all over the world. In this storybook, Anna and Barbara Fienberg have chosen some of their favorite Tashi stories, and written a new one called "Kidnapped "
Barbara Fienberg loved making up stories when she was a child. And the stories continued for another thirty years after she became a teacher librarian. Anna Fienberg says, 'My mother, Barbara, taught at my primary school and I remember sitting spellbound in the library with the rest of the class as she read to us, my mind flying off to wherever she was going. For that hour she was no longer my mother; she was the genie, the snow queen, the terrible tiger and the gentle giant.'No small wonder that Tashi sprang from the tall-tale country of her childhood. It's been great fun exploring this world together, cooking up characters, wondering with each new problem, what would Tashi do?'Anna Fienberg is an award-winning author of over forty books for children and young adults. Kim Gamble was one of Australia's leading illustrators for children. For many years Anna and Kim worked together to create wonderful storybooks.
