Long ago, when the world was new and little Maui was born, the great god Tama carried him away to the underworld to learn magic. When Maui came back to earth, his brothers made fun of him and wouldn’t take him out fishing. They stole away in their boat, laughing at him and thinking he was still asleep — but Maui outwitted his brothers, caught the biggest fish in the ocean, and in the process created something amazing!
This charming tale of Maui of the Thousand Tricks is accompanied by the brilliant, sun-splashed artwork of illustrator Frane Lessac.
