Author(s): Anna Fienberg; Barbara Fienberg; Kim Gamble (Illustrator)

Junior Fiction


Adventurous little Tashi is granted three wishes after encountering a sly genie hiding in an old bowl, in this fourth installment of the Tashi series. Both Tashi and his friend Jack are flabbergasted, however, when Tashi’s wishes don't quite turn out as he hopes, leaving Tashi face to face with the evil warlord he escaped in his very first adventure. This time the warlord has captured children, and in order to rescue them, Tashi needs to stay one step ahead of the villain's devious plans. Tashi’s cleverness will ultimately triumph, teaching young readers about the advantage of brains over brawn.


Product Information

Anna and Barbara Fienberg write the Tashi stories together. When Anna was a child, Barbara read bedtime stories to her and they would travel to all the secret places in the world through books. They started making up the Tashi stories when Barbara remembered how, when she was a child, she used to tell stories, creative fibs...whoppers! And kids would crowd around, dying to hear her latest tale. Anna and Barbara talked about a character like her - someone who told fantastic stories - and over many cups of tea they cooked up Tashi! Kim Gamble is one of Australia's leading illustrators for children. Barbara Fienberg writes the Tashi stories in collaboration with her daughter Anna Fienberg.
