That was nothing like what I remember, still very enjoyable though. It does make me want to re-read some of my childhood favourites since my memory doesn't seem to be very accurate.

I read this book with my daughter. It was a surprisingly quick read at 62 pages (but most of each page is covered in gorgeous pictures). My daughter is still all about the pictures and easing her into chapter books has been difficult as it is so hard to find chapter books that are equal parts words and pictures while still introducing the higher vocab. This was a short, but satisfying read for her.

My daughter was so excited when we started as she said "Tashi! I remember seeing this on tv". Okay.

hi everyone this my review on the first tashi book.
after i read it i was very pleased. The one thing i loved the most was that the main message was that no matter who tells u a person of the street that something isn't true, just trust the ones that you love because they know you the best.
when this message was portrayed in this book is when tashi's grandma tells him that theres a dragon that lives in the cave on top of the mountain so he decides to some how go and find the dragon and he tells so
I stumbled upon this book second-hand and am so glad I did. Published in Australia in 1995 and I believe co-written with her mother, this Tashi book is a perfect first chapter book. The words are simple, but the adventure is big. There are pictures on every single page and it can be read in one sitting, but still feels like a chapter book. (Which, of course, feels like a very big deal as readers transition from short reader books into these)
My girls loved this book which included two tales of

I love Tashi because its short and very interesting. I like when he tricked the dragon. I like how he always has a clever plan. I read them in a few minutes and they're great!

Таши е една изключително сладурска поредица от весели мини книжки, въртящи се около странно хлапе със завъртян перчем, дошло на крилата на гигантски лебед до нашия свят от някакви земи незнайни и потайни, но подчертано азиатски по архитектурен стил, ако и да не са точно земно – азиатски. Момчето се сприятелява със съвременно семейство от неназовано място в неназовано време, но поне звучащо достатъчно нормално, за да са жители на някое изчистено от грижи нордическо селце в богатия север на Европа ...more

Anna Fienberg grew up in a house filled with books. Her mother was a teacher librarian who relished stories as much as chocolates. 'On Sunday mornings we'd all lie in bed with our books, lost in magical wardrobes, witches’ spells, genies’ magic… What we were going to read next was just as important in our family as what was for lunch!' says Anna.

Anna started writing stories when she was eight, but
