Riassunto:

Treasured by children and storytellers for over 75 years, Tajar Tales has delighted many generations of children. First published in 1924, author Jane Shaw Ward created the stories about Tajar in a children's camp in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Retold in camps and family circles ever since, these delightful folktales remain rich in fantasy and imagination.The story takes place in a forest camp near the end of camping season. The whimsical Tajar is "something like a tiger, something like a jaguar, and something like a badger." He loves to dance in the moonlight, but must not be seen by the campers, because "if you see him once, you would forget what he looked like, but if you should see him twice you would forget to forget what he looked like and that would be quite fatal." His forest friends include charming old Madam Witch,who makes her home in a magic tree, and the Range Ranger who "ranges the ranges in that region" and is responsible for the forest and its creatures.

L'autore: Jane Shaw Ward entranced children of all ages from the Rocky Mountains to China, from Paris to California, with her unique and delightful Tajar Tales. By popular demand they were written down in the 1920's and they have delighted more than four generations of children. Miss Ward grew up in Colorado where the Tajar was born in a childrens camp. For two decades, Miss Ward worked in China with the YWCA. She then studied social work in Paris and in Pittsburgh. Before retiring, she was a member of the faculty of the School of Social Work at UCLA. A copy of the very first printing of The Tajar Tales can be found in the UCLA reference library. It was published in 1921 (without illustrations) in Shanghai, China, by Mrs. William Shaw Ward
