About the Author

The books evolved out of an animated television series, made by production company Production Shed, which started airing on Maori TV in late September. The stories were developed by former Te Papa Senior Writer and He Paki Taonga i a Maui co-producer David Brechin-Smith and Te Papa Te Reo Writer,Ranea Aperahama, with the help of writers Victoria Cleal, Matthew Grainger, Frances Samuel and Jen Craddock and translator Stephanie Tibble. The tales were illustrated by Munro Te Whata, Te Hana Goodyer, Izzy Joy Te Aho-White, Huriana Kopeke-Te Aho, Josh Morgan, Miriama Grace-Smith, Ariki Brightwell, and Reweti Arapere.
