Little Rapeti is busy playing. He is far too busy to go to the toilet... UH-OH! It is so easy for children to get so involved with an activity that they forget about everything else. Rapeti is no exception to this. The question is, will he make it in time?
This is one of a new series of bilingual books for young readers that follow the adventures of a playful and determined young rabbit. The simple text offers an accessible introduction for beginners to Te Reo Maori vocabulary while offering a charming storyline to those who already have a good knowledge of both English and Te Reo. Adults and older children will also enjoy the delightful text and colourful illustrations.
The English text is by Norah Wilson; na Pania Papa i whakamaori. Kimberly Andrews' illustrations provide a perfect complement to the story. The series includes themes of individuality and self-belief.
Random listing from 'Books'...
The bad news? The world is ending. The good news? The Bad Guys are back to save it! Sure, they might have to "borrow" a rocket . . . And there might be something nasty in one of the spacesuits . . . And Mr Piranha might have eaten too many bean burritos . . . But seriously, how BAD can it be?
How bad?! SUPER BAD. It's one small step for the Sort-of-International-League-Of-Good-Guys Guys. It's one giant leap for The Bad Guys.
This is the fifth book in the hilarious series from multi-award-winning children's book creator Aaron Blabey.
