Tasha Tudor and Her Corgis

John Wright

Tasha Tudor loved corgis - a short-legged Welsh herding dog. The love of this breed would also lead to inspiring some of her books. Her fascination and love of the breed began with a trip to England with her son Thomas, who bought one of the dogs before attending boarding school and since then she has owned as many as thirteen or fourteen at a time. In 1971, she published Corgiville Fair, which she said was her favorite book. She went on to add sequels, The Great Corgiville Kidnapping and her last book, The Corgiville Christmas in 2003. Here are some of our favorite photos featuring Tasha Tudor and her corgis.

These two characters are featured in Tasha Tudor's very first book 'Pumpkin Moonshine.' Four other little books followed in the 'Calico Books' series. This was Tasha's first big success as an author and illustrator. 'Pumpkin Moonshine' was published by Oxford University Press in 1938.
