Description

This classic Kiwi treasure is the story of a tuna (or eel, in English) who leaves his creek and visits the children of Champion Street. As he visits each one, they pull something out of his mouth: Kelehia gets a kie, Karen gets some shoes, Hirini gets a piu piu, Tuaine gets a pate, Roimata gets a poi, Kava gets a hau, Nga gets a pareu, Losa gets an ula, Jason gets a paper streamer and Fa'afetai gets an ailao afi. The children all go out on to the street and dance day and night. Watercress Tuna is a fun celebration of dancing and music, and is beautifully illustrated by Robyn Kahukiwa.
