Rona Moon / Ko Rona Māhina (Bilingual)

Author(s): Tim Tipene; Stephanie Huriana Fong (Translated by)

Te Reo

‘Everything looks so small from up here,’ said Rona. ‘I know,’ Whaea beamed. ‘Even the reasons we felt angry seem so little.’ The beloved myth of Rona and the Moon comes to 21st-century Aotearoa in English and Maori in Tim Tipene's sensitive interpretation, strikingly illustrated by Tai Tokerau artist Theresa Reihana. Rona Moon gets angry with everyone, her brother, her nana and papa, and then one night she calls the moon stupid! Taken to meet her ancestor Whaea Rona on the moon, she learns a lesson in how to control her temper.

Kathleen's review - I read this with my granddaughters, having first read Peter Gossage's rendition of the original myth of Rona and the Moon, and they enjoyed this book enormously. In English and te reo, and with excellent illustrations that help set the story firmly in our real NZ life, it tackles anger and 'attitude' brilliantly.
