Highly recommend this book and others in the series, great way to introduce tamariki to Maori legends and te reo.

Description

Donovan Bixley re-tells the story of how Maui captured the secret of fire. The traditional tale but with Donovan's unique twist and trademark humour. The pictures are bright and bring their own level of humour to the book. Darryn Joseph and Keri Opai ensure that the story is accurate and culturally appropriate and translate the story for the Te Reo edition.
