Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa's classic 1984 picture book of Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street returns in a bilingual Māori-English setting.

A bilingual Māori-English edition of Patricia Grace and Robin Kahukiwa's classic story of an eel who brings children together to celebrate their diverse cultures, translated into te reo by Hirini Melbourne.

He aha ngā koha whakahirahira a te tuna korokoro huna kura mā ngā tamariki o te Tiriti o Toa?
Kei roto i ngā wātakirihi o te mīanga o Te Awa Iti
e noho ana he tena korokoro huna kura.
I tētahi rangi ka koromiko a Tuna i tōna whiore
ka kōwhiti mai waho i te mīanga o Te Awa Iti . . .

What special gifts does the magical Tuna bring the children of Cannon's Creek?

Since its publication in 1984, Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa’s story about a magical eel that presents cultural treasures to a group of Māori, Pasifika and Pākehā children, who then use their gifts to enrich their neighbourhood, is a firm favourite
