Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought the Te Reo Ingarihi (English) language version of this excellent book as well, so my main review of the book is provided there. I bought the Te Reo M?ori version for my kids (who are fluent ng? kiori-iti) as well for my own practice. The kids loved both versions! I'm looking forward to getting past the first few pages without having to reach for a translator..... It would have easily been a 5-star for me if the astro-precision was better, but I doubt anyone else would be too fussed and will likely just give it 5!


Behind dusty orange hills, where the sky stretches down to the sea, theres a magical, wild, windy place called Te Mata Hapuku. Sam and Te Rerehua love to visit their Grandma and Poua at Te Mata Hapuku (aka Birdlings Flat). They like to collect agate from the stories, with a backdrop of whipping wind, flashing torchlight, and the splash of Pouas gaff in the water. But one night, Grandma notices something mysterious. Someone has stolen some stars from the sky. And then the patupaiarehe come out to play on the beach… Can Sam and Te Rerehua rescue the Matariki stars?
