Bridging Worlds: Unveiling 'Hone and his Mokonui: Adventures in Te Waipounamu'

Introducing our very first reo rua (bilingual) children's book written an illustrated by our team and printed in New Zealand.
We bring to you:
'Hone and his Mokonui: Adventures in Te Waipounamu'
As we launch this enchanting tale, we reflect on the inspiration, dedication, and cultural significance that went into crafting a story that celebrates both the magic of Te Reo Māori and the vibrant spirit and imagination of our tamariki ✨.
A tribute to my incredible nephew Hone, who embodies a love for dinosaurs, reading, and a boundless imagination.

Inspired by our library visit a few years ago where the absence of Māori dinosaur stories sparked my creative journey. Thus, "Hone and his Mokonui," 🦖 our first illustrated children's book, came to life!

The process of creating this book has been a labor of love, and we are excited to see 'Hone and his Mokonui' come to life. This beloved pukapuka marks the culmination of our efforts, and we invite you, your tamariki, and wider whānau, to join us on this exciting Mokonui adventure! 👣
