Monkeys come to the rescue of a struggling family in this traditional tale from a Carnegie Medal winner. Tashi lives in a village below the tea plantations where her mother earns a living. One day her mother falls ill, and Tashi must pick tea to earn the money for a doctor. But she is too small to reach the tender shoots and the cruel Overseer sends her away empty-handed. Then, on the mountains high above the plantation where only monkeys live, something extraordinary happens that will change her life forever...

    " I am reading this book to my 4th and 5th grade classes and I find it to be beautiful in both words and illustrations. For the kids, it starts slow as the story and characters are set up, but I find it riveting. I have only read half and will finish it next week and I can't wait for the fable to unfold. "

    " This wonderful folk tale is about a young girl named Tashi who lives at the foot of the mountains. Her mother works on the plantations nearby picking tea leaves. One day her mother falls ill so Tashi decides to take her place and drags the basket to the plantations. The Overseer belittles Tashi and discourages her as she is too young so Tashi goes to rest amoung the shadows of the Cloud Mountains. Then a miracle takes place. Monkeys come to her aid, climb up in to the clouds and fill Tashi's basket with the rarest most precious tea in the world- cloud tea. This tea earns her lots of money as it impresses the royal tea taster. Tashi is now able to pay for a doctor to heal her mother. Tashi and her mother never have to work again as one day each year the monkeys pick a basket full of cloud tea which then earns money for Tashi and her mother to live on. This lovely story highlights the differences in people, culture, ideas and lifestyles. I absolutely loved this story and would recommend it to a ks2 class. The beautiful illustrations by Alan Marks really stood out for me and made the story come to life. There are also many cross curricular links that can be explored from reading this beautiful picture book. "
