Tashi and the Big Scoop inspired by the Tashi series written by Anna and Barbara Fienberg

Based on the Popular Television Series. Flying Bark Productions. Allen and Unwin, 2015. ISBN 9781925267006
(Age: 6+) Themes: Fantasy; Newspapers; Puzzles. The original Tashi book series by Anna and Barbara Fienberg has been transformed into a television series, and this book is a glossy retelling of one of the episodes involving Jack and his distant cousin Tashi. The boys create a 'quiet' mode of presenting news using a printing press rather than the disturbing and loud manner that Tiki Pu uses to share news in the village. In their attempts to race to gather local news they encounter an ogre and a giant and a mother 'Airmaid' eager to rescue her egg.
This glossy publication also includes questions about the story, puzzles, games and activities, so would make a good gift for a young independent reader (aged 6+) who has also discovered the TV series.
