Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
It was deep mid-winter and all through the village preparations were being made to farewell the old year and greet the new. For the first time ever, the seventh little sister, Ururangi, was big enough to make her own celebration kite. But when the seven sisters take the finished kites to fly them, the east wind whips them all away into the sky ¿ where they now appear as the stars of Matariki to welcome the Maori new year. Carole Prentice has created an imaginative new myth to tell the Matariki story Written in a traditional style, this story will be a welcome addition to the limited Matariki resouces Delightfully illustrated in swirling colour by Dominique Ford Translated into Maori
Picture story book for children.
