• Hinemoa te toa

    Hinemoa the warrior


    Received two awards at the 2009 LIANZA Children's Book Awards: Te Tohu Pounamu mo te wahanga Kaiwhakamaori and Te Tohu Taurapa mo te whahanga Pukapuka Pikitia.

    A much loved classic.

    Hinemoa was tough.

    'I am a warrior,' she'd say, 'Hinemoa te toa - just like my ancestors.'

    Is there anything Hinemoa is afraid of.


    Illustrated by John Bennett. Published 2008 by Scholastic New Zealand.
