Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa's classic 1984 picture book of Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street returns in a bilingual Maori-English setting.
A bilingual Maori-English edition of Patricia Grace and Robin Kahukiwa's classic story of an eel who brings children together to celebrate their diverse cultures, translated into te reo by Hirini Melbourne.
He aha nga koha whakahirahira a te tuna korokoro huna kura ma nga tamariki o te Tiriti o Toa?
Kei roto i nga watakirihi o te mianga o Te Awa Iti
e noho ana he tena korokoro huna kura.
I tetahi rangi ka koromiko a Tuna i tona whiore
ka kowhiti mai waho i te mianga o Te Awa Iti . . .
What special gifts does the magical Tuna bring the children of Cannon's Creek?
Since its publication in 1984, Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa's story about a magical eel that presents cultural treasures to a group of Maori, Pasifika and Pakeha children, who then use their gifts to enrich their neighbourhood, is a firm favourite.
