About this book
Three deftly spun, emotionally resonant stories with the feel of time-honoured fables but the freshness of a contemporary voice. Includes illustrations by Michael Foreman. Ages: 7+
When Tashi's mother falls ill and is unable to work, Tashi looks to the monkeys on a Himalayan tea plantation for help. Yazul and his clan, trapped inside their desert fortress by bandits, are saved from starvation by fiercesome dragon kites. Issa, the old mountain guide, has his life turned upside down when he stumbles upon a camel.
