Set in India, Tashi is a boy who's not afraid of most things, until he meets an especially mean ogre. He and his companion, Lotus Blossom, come up with a plan to turn his rage into something a bit more palatable. Beautiful paintings to support the story, but the story itself is not engaging and a bit confusing in parts.

*REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER*

Tashi is an inquisitive fellow who will delight both toddlers and young readers. The bold print is clear and easily read and the accompanying pictures are delightful. This fable of a courageous young boy imparts a lovely lesson – that with a little bravery and understanding, we can find the best in others. Highly recommended.

Great book. It keeps you wanting to read it on and on 'till it ends. Several stories in one. Weird book.

Anna Fienberg grew up in a house filled with books. Her mother was a teacher librarian who relished stories as much as chocolates.
