              "A grand piano crashes off a crane that's lifting it into a block of council flats. Rebuilding it is impossible. But for Stefan, piano restorer and illegal immigrant, it's the only way out of a heap of trouble. And for better or worse, a misfit bunch of tenants weighs in to help ...him. Everything depends on the wrecked piano and whether they can pull off its restoration"--Publisher information.

              What happens when you take 22 of New Zealand's best children's story writers and let them loose 'backstage' at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa? We invited authors from around the country to choose one of the museum's taonga (treasures) as a starting point for an imagi...native journey. The result is a truly original compendium of stories and poems for children with spirited, original illustrations from the award-winning Sarah Laing.

              A girl carries a tray of eggs on her fingertips, a man plays a cello in a field, a woman buys a carpet sweeper - these moments of everyday life are deceptively simple. Underneath, something else is going on - a sense of mystery, an awareness of impending death, a wry view of huma...n nature. Some of these poems tell a story, some offer an insight, some offer a moment of lyrical beauty. Together, they invite the reader to pause, pay attention, and listen.

              "Immigrant women bring to New Zealand rich experiences of lives spent in other cultures. But their stories are rarely told. In this book ten women, who have come to New Zealand between 1969 and 1987, speak in depth about growing up in their first countries, and their lives in New... Zealand. They talk about childhood, marriage, discrimination, language, their aspirations for their children, and the role of women in their first culture and in New Zealand. They also, often poignantly, point to what they cannot speak about"--Publisher information.
