Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A beloved Maori myth about the origin of New Zealand's North Island, as told by the iconic author and illustrator Peter Gossage.

Maui's jealous brothers don't want him to come fishing with them. Maui is cleverer than they are, however, and not only does he trick them, but he catches the best fish of all.

Also available as a Maori-English text, Te-Ika-a-Maui / The Fish of Maui
