The iconic Māori myth is now available as a bilingual Māori-English story, with Merimeri Penfold's beautiful translation of Peter Gossage’s much-loved text.
He poto rawa nga ra, he roa rawa nga po. Oti ana i a Maui he whakaaro e ata rere ai te ra i te rangi.
He putanga reo Māori–reo Pakeha o tenei tino pakiwaitara o Aotearoa.
Faced with very short days and very long nights, Maui comes up with a plan to slow the Sun’s passage through the sky.
Peter Gossage’s much-loved retelling of this famous Māori myth has captivated young children for generations.
