This small lion has a subversive sensibility, behaving very badly but with such enthusiasm!

Julia Marshall, Publisher

He Rite a Miti ki a Pāpā

A warm father and son story in te reo Māori in which an irresistible lion cub proudly tries to be just like Pāpā.

Miti can do everything Pāpā does: Pāpā combs his hair. So does Miti. Pāpā scratches his arm. So does Miti. Pāpā sings very, very loud. So does Miti.

But when Miti throws all the toys in the air and they come down PAKU! on Pāpā’s head … Pāpā yells! Auē! So does Miti! Pāpā takes a break and has a think. Then comes rushing back for a big hug—Pāpā is very, very happy, and so is Miti!

Boundary-pushing Miti has a mischievous grin that instantly wins us over, and his tolerant father incidentally provides a great model for parenting.

This small and sturdy board book is just right for toddlers’ and preschoolers’ hands making it ideal to read alongside a child.
