Tashi and the Wicked Magician and Other Stories by Anna Fienberg, Barbara Fienberg

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


In these five chapter-length tales, Tashi and his gentle escapades provide just enough danger to captivate budding fantasy fans.

About the Author

When Anna Fienberg was little, her mother, Barbara, read lots of stories to her. At bedtime they would travel to secret places in the world, through books. The Tashi stories began when Barbara was telling Anna how she used to tell whoppers when she was a child. Creative fibs. Tall stories. And kids would crowd around her, dying to hear the latest tale. Together they talked about a character like Barbara - someone who told fantastic stories - and over many cups of tea they cooked up Tashi...As well as having his own series, Tashi appears in two splendid picture books, illustrated by Kim Gamble: There Once Was a Boy Called Tashi and Once Tashi Met a Dragon...

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
