"A Kiwi picture book classic for home or school use."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A great read aloud for home or school with many underlying themes. Multi cultural perspectives on fearsome creatures told in an engaging cautionary tale. I ask my children “I wonder why her parents didn't just explain that it is dangerous to go near deep water by yourself?” Their answers are well worth listening to!

Description

This classic reissue of one of Joy Cowley's most popular children's stories follows Josephine as she tries to discover exactly what a taniwha is. Dad tells her the taniwha is a terrible beast but Mum doesn't believe they are real. Mr Mackie thinks it's a slimy monster with a long neck and teeth like carving knives. Mr Chen thinks it's like a Chinese dragon while Mr Papadoupolos thinks it's like a Greek Gorgon. Everyone seems to have a different opinion so Josephine thinks the best solution is to catch a taniwha and find out for herself.
