Little Unity will celebrate the end of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week) with the launch of Donovan Bixley’s new pukapuka. Donovan Bixley presents the latest adventure in his Tales of Aotearoa series, a fresh take on Māui which brings the cheeky trickster to life for a new generation of Kiwi kids. The latest book follows the success of 'How Māui Fished up the North Island', and the te reo Māori edition ('Te Hīnga Ake a Māui i Te Ika Whenua'), which was nominated for the Wright Family Foundation Te Kura Pounamu Award for te reo Māori at the 2019 NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults. Donovan will be drawing and reading from 'How Māui Slowed the Sun' / 'Te Whakatautōnga A Māui I Te Rā' followed by a book signing. Both the English and te reo Māori editions of the book go on sale Thursday 12 September. Enquiries to kids@unitybooksauckland.co.nz
