A beautiful collection of artist Peter Gossage's beloved Māori myths, in one stunning volume.

Peter Gossage’s memorable retellings of Māori oral myths have captivated the children of New Zealand for generations. Their dramatic and distinctive illustrations with minimal yet evocative language form a powerful combination, and each has earned its place among the beloved classics of our literature.

These are exciting, magical tales of adventure and intrigue. Several feature the remarkable culture hero Māui – the quick-witted and the trickster – whose exploits include slowing the sun in its course across the sky, fishing up the North Island/Te Ika a Māui, discovering the secret of fire and his attempt to trick the goddess of death and become immortal.

M āui and Other Legends contains eight essential legends. In this volume you will find timeless favourites such as How M āui Found his Mother, Battle of the Mountains, Pania of the Reef and many more.

The treasury includes:

  • How M āui Found his Mother
  • How M āui Found his Father and the Magic Jawbone
  • The Fish of M āui
  • How M āui Slowed the Sun
  • How M āui Found the Secret of Fire
  • How M āui Defied the Goddess of Death
  • Battle of the Mountains
  • Pania of the Reef
