To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Robyn Belton's heart-warming, beautifully illustrated story, this true-life adventure, has now been translated into te reo Maori. Hapata te kuri maia o te moana is the true story about a small dog who lived by the sea. Everybody loved him, but the person who loved him most was Tim. One fine day, an excited Hapata set off on a boat with Tim's father, heading for the Marlborough Sounds. What no one knew, however, was that the weather would soon turn rough and Hapata would be thrown into the biggest adventure of his life. Having sold over 40,000 since release, this title is sure to continue to delight children, their parents, teachers and librarians for many more years to come.
