Nga Whetu Matariki i Whanakotia (The Stolen Stars of Matariki Te Reo Edition)

Author(s): Miriama Kamo (Translated by Ngaere Roberts)

Childrens Te Reo Maori

Behind dusty orange hills, where the sky stretches down to the sea, there is 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 stones, with a backdrop of whipping wind, flashing torchlight, and the splash of Poua's 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? A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book are donated to the restoration of the lake, Te Roto o Wairewa.
