My Aussie Grandkids love these books about where their Dad came from and where their Nanna lives


Now reprinted for a new generation, Peter Gossage's books bring these ancient maori stories to life.

In this tale Maui wants to slow down the sun, who moves too quickly through the sky. With the help of his brothers he implements a plan to catch the sun with ropes and tie it to the earth. Maui succeeds and lengthens the hours of daylight.
