Once you’ve seen a Tashi picture book, it’s hard not to be captivated by the mystical, beautiful land he lives in. Co-author Anna Fienberg talks about the Tashi series, the stunning illustrations by Kim Gamble and how it all came about. To hear more from Anna, you can catch her at the Sydney Jewish Writer's Festival on Sunday at 2pm, or listen to the podcast after the event.

These books are a perfect way to celebrate this week's Screen Free Challenge theme of READ. And if you want to keep celebrating screen-free activities, enter our competition to win a weekend away now!
