The Children's Bookshop

Te Hipo Huna

A te reo Māori edition of this deft and delightful tale, packed with word play and madcap energy.

Written by Juliette MacIver, illustrated by Sarah Davis and translated by Karena Kelly.

  • Description

    A class trip to the zoo descends into a chaotic hunt for the missing hippopotamus. Teacher, zookeeper and all the children join the search.
