Description of this Book
Hapata te kuri maia o te moana is the true story about a small dog who lived by the sea. Everybody loved him, but the person who loved him most was Tim. One fine day, an excited Hapata set off on a boat with Tim's father, heading for the Marlborough Sounds. What no one knew, however, was that the weather would soon turn rough and Hapata would be thrown into the biggest adventure of his life.
Translated from the English language version: Herbert: The Brave Sea Dog. See ISBN: 9781877333972
