This story takes place in the east - most likely India. Both my 8 year old nephew and 10 year old niece were enchanted by the tale & illustrations.
"The sun had not yet found a way through the mountains, but it was coming; a light the color of lemons was soaking into the sky and painting out the stars."
"The overseer laughed an ugly laugh full of brown teeth."
"His mustache was like a spread of snowy wings."
"Then from under the cloth there came a good deal of sniffing and snuffling: short shallow snuffles and then some long deep sniffs and then the kind of gasping that comes before a sneeze. Then another, longer silence. A hand came out from under the cloth. The fingers clicked again....When Tashi saw his face, the Royal Tea Taster no longer looked stern; he looked like a man who had seen an angel."
We read on. As I finished the story, my husband dabbed his eyes with his napkin,"It's OK, you can keep ordering books."
When I finished reading it to my daughters for the first time, the four and a half year old immediately took the book from my hands and started turning the pages herself, reviewing the full color pictures. "I liked this book" she said solemnly. Me too.
It's worth getting your hands on.
