Painting Out the Stars

By Elspeth Graham, Mal Peet
Illustrated by Michael Foreman

Three deftly spun, emotionally resonant stories with the feel of time-honoured fables but the freshness of a contemporary voice.

When Tashi's mother falls ill and is unable to work, Tashi looks to the monkeys on a Himalayan tea plantation for help... Yazul and his clan, trapped inside their desert fortress by bandits, are saved from starvation by fiercesome dragon kites... Issa, the old mountain guide, has his life turned upside down when he stumbles upon a camel sheltering a baby girl in a desert storm...

  • Three charming tales from an award-winning author and illustrator.
