Maui and other Māori legends : 8 classic tales of Aotearoa, by Peter Gossage (1946-)
These stories were fantastic and I would read them again and again. The Goddess of Death was a bit scary so I would rate that a 1 star. My favourite is the Battle of the Mountains.

So it’s the holidays – who’s bored? and who is reading? Want to bring some of those tales into real life? Want something delicious to eat but it will totally disgust your younger/older, brother/sister/friend/cousin/relative staying over for the holidays? Well Roald Dahl (who I just learned to pronounce correctly, “Roo-aal”) invented snozzcumbers for his non-human eating giant, you may remember these from the movie! An edible version for humans can be found in Roald Dahl’s revolting recipes, page 12 =)
And what’s been really popular over the holidays…?
