The eleventh book in the Tashi series of daring adventures and tall tales about magic, courage and the triumph of brains over brawn. Created by the much loved, multi-award winning author/illustrator team of Anna and Barbara Fienberg and Kim Gamble.
'I raced up and down the street looking in doorways and behind stalls. But there was no Grandma.'
Tashi always has big adventures, like the time he's lost in the city and has to escape from a mean man with a glass eye and a silver dagger then, on the way home, Tashi and Grandma are kidnapped by brigands called Fearless and Ferocious.
But clever Tashi always knows what to do - stay calm, think hard and move fast.
