The Taniwha in Our Backyard

Author(s): Malcolm Paterson

Teens | No Category

Tui, his cousin Jennifer and their whanau go to the south Kaipara to visit their Uncle Rua and Auntie Mina. Exploring the area down to Muriwai, they learn about moa, kauri, Maui dolphins, kaitiakitanga (stewardship), geology and more. In the telling of their stories, a previously unknown taniwha (monster) takes centre stage! Mixing English and Maori (with some Malay words thrown in), established and newer ethnic groups, this new work in the Sharing Our Stories series connects children with the amazing environments and history around them
