Donovan Bixley re-tells the story of how Māui slowed the journey of the sun through the sky each day! It’s the traditional tale but with Donovan’s unique twist and trademark humour. The pictures are bright and bring their own level of humour to the book. Darryn Joseph ensures that the story is accurate and culturally appropriate and translates , along with Keri Opai, the story for the Te Reo edition.
