Description of this Book

Who can help when you're faced with vicious creatures that are meant to be extinct or people who don't care whether you live or die? The Tui Street kids are writing `hero's journey' stories at school, but soon find themselves involved in adventures more difficult than they could ever have imagined. From award-winning New Zealand author, Anne Kayes, creator of Tui Street Tales and winner of the Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon Award, 2016. The kids from Tui Street make a welcome return as more awe-inspiring adventures await readers looking for a little - a lot - of magic. - Dionne Christian, Canvas, NZ Herald. This is a stand-alone book and therefore you do not have to have read the first book, Tui Street Tales, however, we recommend you do.

Anne's background was originally in Drama and English secondary school teaching. Alongside teaching, she wrote scripts for students, and skits that she performed in comedy shows. One year, she co-wrote a solo show that she performed in schools. In 2014, Anne completed a Masters in Creative Writing at AUT. She won the 2016 Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon award with `Tui Street Tales', seven interlinked stories for 8-12 year-olds, published in 2017. The sequel, `Tui Street Heroes,' is being published by Wildling Books this year. Anne lives with her family in Mt. Albert, Auckland. She teaches English, and writes every moment she can, usually with her dog lying on top of her feet!
