Description of this Book

This story is about the kapahaka group: the boys and girls who take part, and the way that the whole whanau is involved in the preparation and performance of the kapahaka. Children will absorb a lot of information about Maori culture and language from this fun and attractive story. For further information, a glossary of Maori words is included at the back of the book. The rhythm of the text is based on the traditional children's tale The House that Jack Built . For example, These are the piu piu, that swished and swirled, that swung on the hips of the group of girls, who sang in the kapahaka.
