Ngā mihi manahau e hoa mā!
The book I have been working on for the last little while has finally been released into the wild. Written by Courtney Sina Meredith with illustrations by myself, it’s called The Adventures of Tupaia and is published by Allen and Unwin. It tells the story of Tupaia, the Tahitian navigator-priest who travelled with Cpt Cook on the Endeavour to Aotearoa and offers a unique perspective on the events, while helping to bring into the light the neglected story of this fascinating man and his part in our history.
Here’s a link to book info on the Allen and Unwin site, and here’s a pretty cool trailer for the book.
More news to come!
