The Promise of Puanga
This is a well written story with illustrations that enhance the readers’ experience. The characters in this book could be any kiwi child living in New Zealand. I was drawn to both children but to find out that Puanga was a star and could help the town with her knowledge added to the special friendship between the two friends.
A definite must for any size library.
