Maui and other Māori legends : 8 classic tales of Aotearoa, by Peter Gossage (1946-)
It was a good book because when Maui got into the boat at the bottom his brothers didn’t notice because they wanted Maui to not come. He surprised them and made them go to a different place to fish. When he got to the place where he wanted to fish his brothers fell asleep.
My favourite legend was Pania of the Reef because she went back to land and had a baby. I also like the bit when Maui got the magic jawbone from his Grandfather.
I think this book would be good for 6 year olds and up.
