Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Counting the Stars is a collection that continues to take traditional myths to a new level. Created by one of New Zealand's most talented and passionate children's book writers and illustrators.
Mother Earth and Father Sky -- The battle of the birds -- Kae and the whale -- Hinemoa and Tūtānekai.
This book contains four Maori myths. They're exciting and scary but each story is nicely resolved. Gavin allows the essence of the original myths to remain while also re-telling them for a new generation of children.
Sequel to: Taming the sun, and Riding the waves.
