This tender book will warm your heart and make you SMILE.
As a coffee drinker, I took a punt on this recently. I’m glad I did! A sentimental tale from India, it tells the story of Tashi, a little girl who has to pick tea when her mother becomes ill. Too short to reach the best shoots, all seems lost until she meets the cloud tea monkeys. A story of how kindness repays kindness, its beauty lies within its wonderful storytelling and equally wonderful illustrations. Even non-tea drinkers will love this book!
