He kino ra te noho a te tamariki. Ko Greg Heffley tetahi e mohio pai ana ki tenei. Being a kid can really stink. And no one knows this better than Greg Heffley.
In this brilliant translation of Jeff Kinney's bestselling Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Heni Jacob, twelve year old hero Greg Heffley is the Tama Hungoingoi (Wimpy Kid) of the title. He tells us all about his life in the original language of Aotearoa New Zealand, te reo Maori.
A great book in any language, Te Rataka a Tama Hungoingoi is packed with laughter, gags, disasters, daydreams and plenty to keep young readers hooked until the very end.
