Tashi is off on his 10th escapade, and as always, his adventure is spooky and exciting. Tashi is nearly buried alive when an ancient burial site is discovered in the village. To make matters worse, the precious book of spells disappears and the villagers won't be safe until he finds it. It takes all of Tashi's courage and cleverness to solve the mystery in the king's chamber of the ancient tomb and save the town. The thrilling adventures of Tashi are perfect for young, independent readers.

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.
