    I will always love Tashi, even when I'm 70 years old. These books never get old.

    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. That so didn't help me any. We started reading and to be honest I was a little confused about what/who Tashi was. Thankfully the author wrote a little blurb at the start that says "Tashi began when Barbara (her mother) was telling me how, when she was a child, she used to tell whoppers. Tall stories. Creative fibs. And kids would crowd around, dying to hear the latest tale.....and over many cups of tea we cooked up Tashi". So Tashi is the kid with lots of tall tales and this one was all about how he/she(?) killed the last dragon. BAD TASHI I SAY!!!!Cute little Australian novel that kids seem to adore. Probably best suited for around 6-9 years of age - but really kids (irrespective of age) should be allowed to read whatever the hell they like :-P.

    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 some of his friends and they say oh yeah sure like are you kidding me. so tashi believes them and looses his drive to find this dragon so then when its time for dinner and tashi's gran sees he's upset and so he follows hi passion about finding the dragon.but i can't say anymore because i don't want to spoil it for you so i encourage you guys to read this book because this book is not big at all i finished this book in a couple hours so i really enjoyed itand thank you for reading my review.

    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 Tashi the gnome. The first he is stolen from home by an evil warlord and in the second he tricks a mean old dragon. Be warned though, your kids will want to hear more Tashi tales when they read this... so stock up!Unfortunately, our library system here only has one copy of each of these books so good luck tracking them down here in the states.

    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 Европата. И носи със себе си увлекателни истории за фантастични приключения и пътешествия, които разнообразяват така или иначе ведрите дни на естествено щастливите му домакини, допълвайки безгрижните сезони на идеалния им живот.Таши има невероятната способност да се забърква в наистина огромни каши, но и да се измъква от тях по хитър и доста ловък начин, който може да вдъхнови малките си читатели да използват ума си и да го тренират , за да могат да се справят с човекоядни дракони, зли великани, недружелюбни духове или мързеливи джинове, както и с жестоки военни лордове, лукави роднини, алчни лихвари и противни разбойници – от двете страни на реалността, които се изреждат да сипят злините си върху дома и в частност главицата на Таши постоянно. Приключенията се редят шеметно едно след друго, а невероятните илюстрации в молив в черно-бялата гама смайват със своята детайлност и хващат погледа на читателите, изживяващи половината фабула чрез визуални способи.Един прекрасен проект за деца, в който качественият текст се съчетава с много приятно оформление, достойно за всеки читател с вкус, независимо от възрастта, необиждащо никой естетски поглед или спомен за някогашните детски книги, които вярвате или – имаха красиви, а не гротескно-странно – стряскащи илюстрации тип Гъмбол и чичо Дядко. Прекрасна поредица, за която ще следя внимателно издателство Унискорп за останалите десетки книжки от серията, за да заемат своята заслужена позиция сред колекцията ми от наистина ценни и забавни истории, способни да оцветят всеки работен сив ден, който ме дебне зад ъгъла на уикенда. Препоръчвам силно!

    What a delightful little book. Lovely short adventures of Tashi, think Bea will love reading these and there looks to be a good series of them. Perfect for her growing desire to read independently.

    I am desperately looking for books to engage my 7 year old son to enjoy reading for pleasure. I am an avid reader and would love to begin to read books together and discuss them.I tried reading Tashi to him the other night. This marks the first time where I read to him and he actually sat still for more than 3 minutes.The book description readsIn the first book of the much-adored Tashi series, children are introduced to Jack’s extraordinary imaginary friend Tashi, a gnome-like character from a place far away. Brave Tashi tells adventurous tales of being sold to a warlord and escaping on a swan. This little hero has to be clever to outsmart giants, ghosts, demons, and witches that stand in his way. Young readers will be captivated by Tashi’s tall tales of courage and daring.Typically to have my son read for 15 minutes or me reading to him or a combo is a challenge. When I read this to him we actually read the entire book. He loved it! I was shocked by how focused he was as we read about dragons, giants, and the whole bit. The pictures on each page really helped him to stay engaged. After reading this book he took it to his room to read and look at on his own. I have to give this book s5 starts for the fact that it connected with my son and he actually enjoyed it. For sure I will be snagging the rest of the books in the series for hope that the focus continues.

    I received this book as part of the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop. Tashi is the first in a series of books for young readers, who are just moving on from picture books to the sorts of books that have maybe 40-60 words per page, with lots of illustrations. I'm afraid I'm not sure of the age range for this - probably early primary, would be my guess.Tashi is Jack's new friend, and he comes from a place very far away. He has had many exciting adventures, and every day he shares one of them with Jack. The adventures are fantastical and a bit whimsical, and Tashi's wit is generally what saves the day.The illustrations in this book are particularly worth noting - they are black and white pencil drawings, beautifully shaded and very expressive. The artist is Kim Gamble.Altogether, this is a charming little book for a young reader, with just a little touch of humour for the adults who might be helping a child read aloud.

    I am sharing a Tashi adventure each week with my year 1 classes and they are loving him. To give you a flavor of the series,this is a review of book 1 ...... 'Well, it was like this. Come and I'll tell you about the time I tricked the last dragon of all.' So says the daring hero, Tashi, in his first book of adventures.In the first story in this book, Jack has a new friend called Tashi, who comes from a place very far away. Learn how Tashi excaped from a war lord and flew to this country on a swan. In the second story, 'Dragon Breath', Tashi tells Jack about the time he tricked the last dragon of all.The year 1's think Tashi is cheeky, clever, tricky, very brave, intelligent, kind, curious, and he saves the day and goes on adventures. I'm enjoying reading these books and revisiting Tashi's amazing adventures.

    A 1001 CBYMRBYGU. Jack announces to his parents that he has a new friend named Tashi. His parents probe the boy to find out about the friend, but, to the boy’s dismay, the dad always asks the wrong questions. Jack tells incredible tales about Tashi. A fun story written with intermittent pictures to lead an early chapter book reader through the story. I liked this book.Jack and Tashi sat at the kitchen table, drinking their juice.“Would you like to play in the garden now?” asked Mum.“Oh, yes!” said Tashi. “I like gardens.”“We could look for a dragon to kill,” Jack said hopefully to Tashi.“Are there any dragons left in the garden?” asked Dad.“You always say the wrong thing!” said Jack.

    Recycles a lot of standard fairy tale tropes (kid knows more than parents, innocent yet also devious fantasy friend of human child, blustery yet harmless monster duped into its own demise by attacking its reflection in the water, etc.). Nothing terribly objectionable while nothing terribly inspiring. It's a fairly safe entry point into chapter books for pre-readers, as there is more space devoted to pictures than text.

    Deservedly my favourite childhood 'superhero' TASHI! I loved going in adventures with Tashi & his best friend Jack. The series introduces you to a variety of fantastical creatures and villains and most of all no limits when it comes to imagination. A series you want to hear the next instalment as soon as you finish the one you're currently reading.

    I've read two of these now. They're very short and according to the book, were created by a mother/daughter team. It's gentle storytelling and a good way to introduce kids to chapter books and folktales at the same time. But they're just OK.

    My 8 year old daughter and I love the first book in the series. It’s packed with fun filled adventure of magic, mystery and dragons. Great imagination and pencil illustrations. We love how Tashi comes up with his 'cunning ideas'…..we think he’s very clever

  • Angela

    Perfect for early readers. Great pencil illustrations. Tashi is about storytelling and adventure. While this may only take you 5 minutes to read, it will be a fun skill and confidence builder for young/struggling readers in search of fantastical adventures. Ages 5-7, or read aloud to ages 3-5.

    Imported from Australia and it sounded like fun. It was poorly written and executed. I also didn't like that the dad was ALWAYS wrong and the child was disrespectful enough to tell him.
