Written by Chris Szekely | illustrated by Malcolm Ross | translated into te reo Māori by Brian Morris

This is the te reo version of the English book by the same name, and is hardcover.

This picture book is about cousins’ holidays in a rural Māori community – playing in the bush, riding horses, fishing, eeling and swimming at the beach.

During the holiday, a death leads to a rāhui (temporary ritual ban) being placed on the beach. After a year, the rāhui is lifted, and people return to the beach full of life and with their cousin in their hearts. The feeling of the book is joyous and wistful, and the illustrations richly evoke the atmosphere of the setting and people.
