by William Papas
In this warm and uplifting tale from the Greek islands, Tasso and his bouzouki bring music and dancing to the local café. But what will Tasso do when the juke box arrives, providing endless entertainment to the customers? William Papas’ timeless fable conjures up the essence of island life where fates are intertwined. With unique and evocative illustrations, ‘Tasso’ will linger in the imagination long after the story has finished.
Runner up for the Kate Greenaway Medals three times in the 1960s, and awarded six commendations, William Papas was a renowned cartoonist, children’s author and illustrator. His work is held in many collections around the world, as well as at the V&A Museum in London.
