A reo Maori edition of a brilliantly interactive, bestselling picture book that tickles the funny bones of both children and adults.
Kei te hia hunahuna a Arewhana. Nau mai, whakapiri mai! Otira kia kaha koe – Ka KINO tana pai!
Elephant wants to play hide and seek. You can play too. But you’ll need to try your best—he’s VERY good! He can even hide behind a lamp, or a small tree...
A small boy and his elephant play an absurd game of hide and seek in this beautifully illustrated picture book that will have young readers shouting out loud in delight, and adults laughing too, as Arewhana hides, in full view. Perhaps the little dog sees him, perhaps not.
This game-inside-a-book celebrates imaginative play and is perfect for sharing with children who will love being better at finding the elephant than the boy. Watch out for the tortoise, too…
With its energy and humour, Arewhana Hunahuna offers a language level that suits both beginning and experienced reo Maori speakers.
David Barrow is a graduate of the Cambridge School of Art and his debut picture book, Have You Seen Elephant? has been shortlisted for multiple awards.
