Cloud Tea Monkeys

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Tashi's mother is an impoverished tea-picker, and when she becomes ill, the little girl tries to continue her mother's job. Ridiculed by the bad-tempered Overseer, Tashi seeks solace where the local monkeys regularly share her fruit, and her generosity is repaid as they pick the highest and best tea to fill her basket.

Recognising its excellence, the benevolent Royal Tea-Taster rewards Tashi, her mother is cured, and their livelihood ensured.

A delightful story enriched by the beautiful illustration, which tells us much about how legend develops.
