As the taniwha Ngakau Pono sleeps, big machines come, tall buildings rise and aeroplanes take off and land. Ngakau Pono has been forgotten by his people, until something happens and he begins to stir...

Trailblazing Maori artist Robyn Kahukiwa's picture book about the forgotten taniwha Ngakau Pono, meaning 'Loyal Heart', is now available in this bilingual Maori-English edition.

E hia rau tau nei a Ngakau Pono e tiaki ana i tona iwi. Heoi ano, no te wehenga atu o tona iwi i te pa, ka ahatia?

Ngakau Pono has been looking after his people for hundreds of years. But what happens when his people leave the pa?

A beautiful bilingual children's story about culture loss and rediscovery by one of Aotearoa's foremost artists.
