Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Peter Gossage¿s Maui series is well-known and loved. The six titles in the series have been repackaged and redesigned for a new generation of readers, without losing the integrity of the initial artwork. The books follow Maui¿s birth, his abandonment by his mother and his search for her, his search for his father and discovery and eventual owners of his grandfather¿s magic jawbone, and his fishing up of Te Ika a Maui (the North Island). How Maui Found his Father and the Magic Jawbone is the story of how Maui wonders where his mother goes each evening. One night he follows her and finds she visits his father, and the family is reunited. Maui then meets his grandfather, and secures his jawbone, which has magical properties.
