Maui and other Māori legends : 8 classic tales of Aotearoa, by Peter Gossage (1946-)
I think that book is pretty good.
My favourite bit was probably How Maui found the secret of fire – especially when he kept telling lies to his aunty. I reckon he was pretty tricksy. I liked it how he amazed the people of his village by making the fire. I also felt pretty sorry for his aunty, losing all her fire-nails.
I like the way the books has more than just one story – but is a whole collection.
I liked the pictures as well.
