In a new picture book, Tashi rides on a white tiger to the top of the mountain to see why the dragon is not sending the rains to his village
Ever since he could remember, Tashi had been told stories about the dragon. Grandmother said the dragon lived over the mountain and far away. Second Uncle said the dragon lived in a palace of gold--he'd seen it once with his telescope, twinkling like a star. Wise-as-an-Owl said they'd be lucky if they never saw a dragon in their whole lives.
Kim Gamble's stunning illustrations take readers again into the wondrous land where Tashi lives, in the second color book to introduce Tashi to very young children. Tashi's village is experiencing a drought, so he takes a journey to find why the rains aren't being sent--a scary journey, as the dragons are the source of rain. As always, Tashi is brave and clever, and finds a way to relate to the dragons and save his village.
