              A te reo Maori board book that shares how to talk about feelings through a friendship between a child and their dog. Through the up-close expressive faces of a child and their dog, we learn the Maori words for a range of feelings. Taku kuri pai - my good dog. He hatakehi ia. My d...og is happy ... angry ... excited ... sad ... shy ... hopeful ... Taku hoa pumau, my faithful friend. This simple board book is a starting point to talk about how we feel. Key words describe the many emotions a dog can go through in a short time, while the expressions on the faces of the people nearby convey a whole new raft of feelings as they respond and react. And so the story becomes one of friendship and how our friends make us feel. This new board book is a multi-layered delight joining Mihi and Koro in Gavin Bishop's powerful series to share with the smallest children.

The main rhythmic text, based on the well-known rhyme, tells the story of Jack Bull, who travels to New Zealand from London as a new settler in 1798. "The detailed contemporary illustrations ... tell the story from a Maori pe...rspective - beginning with the myth of creation: Papatuanuku the earth mother, Ranginui the sky father and their children as guardians of the land. As the story goes on and Jack's house grows, Papatuanuku is shown in the illustrations to weaken and fade.

              A collection of four excitingly told and stunningly illustrated Maori stories for children, by award-winning New Zealand children's writer and illustrator Gavin Bishop. Counting the Stars continues to take traditional myths to a new level. Created by one of New Zealand's most tal...ented and passionate children's book writers and illustrators. A sequel to Taming the Sun and Riding the Waves, this stunning book contains four more Maori myths, including two well-known legends (Ranginui and Papatuanuku and Hinemoa and Tutanekai) and two less well-known legends (The battle of the birds and Kae and the whale). Aimed at children 3-10 years, these myths are simply written and yet powerful. They're exciting and scary but each story is nicely resolved. Gavin allows the essence of the original myths to remain while also re-telling them for a new generation of children. The illustrations are stunning - the different colour palette for each story and the strong mix of techniques create bold and beautiful images.
