Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A sequel or companion book to TAMING THE SUN, Gavin Bishop's latest stunning book contains four more Maori myths, including two well-known legends (Maui finds his family and Maui and the goddess of fire) and two less well-known legends (Hatupatu and the birdwoman and Rata and his waka). Aimed at children 3-10 years, these myths are simply and yet elegantly written. Gavin's characteristic sense of humour is evident in all of the stories, and while each story is exciting and often a little bit scary, they are resolved beautifully. Gavin allows the essence of the original myths to remain while also re-telling them for a new generation of children. The illustrations are stunning - the different colour palette for each story and the strong mix of techniques create bold and beautiful images that integrate with the words in a powerful and meaningful way. RIDING THE WAVES is a collection that continues to take traditional myths to a new level. Created by one of New Zealand's most talented and passionate children's book writers and illustrators. TAMING THE SUN was shortlisted for NZ Post Children's Book Awards 2005.
