    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 three splendid picture books, illustrated by Kim Gamble: There Once Was a Boy Called Tashi, Once Tashi Met a Dragon and The Amazing Tashi Activity Book. Tashi also appears in his own animated television series, Tashi.
