Description

A beautiful collection of artist Peter Gossage's beloved Maori myths, in one stunning volume. Peter Gossage's memorable retellings of Maori oral myths have captivated the children of New Zealand for generations.

These are exciting, magical tales of adventure and intrigue. Several feature the remarkable culture hero Maui - the quick-witted and the trickster - whose exploits include slowing the sun in its course across the sky, fishing up the North Island/Te Ika a Maui, discovering the secret of fire and his attempt to trick the goddess of death and become immortal.

The treasury includes- How Maui Found his Mother How Maui Found his Father and the Magic Jawbone The Fish of Maui How Maui Slowed the Sun How Maui Found the Secret of Fire How Maui Defied the Goddess of Death Battle of the Mountains Pania of the Reef
