Supporting a love of reading has always been a priority in our home. That age of 9-12 years can often be a challenge to find appropriate and exciting stories.
The Tūī Street kids share what happens when you find yourself on a dangerous journey, and you’re expected to be the hero. Who can help when you’re faced with vicious creatures that are meant to be extinct or people who don’t care whether you live or die? The Tūī Street kids are writing ‘hero’s journey’ stories at school, but soon find themselves involved in adventures more difficult than they could ever have imagined.
Written by award-winning New Zealand author, Anne Kayes, creator of Tūī Street Tales and winner of the Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon Award, 2016. This book can be read as a continuation or a stand alone.
“The kids from Tūī Street make a welcome return as more awe-inspiring adventures await readers looking for a little - a lot - of magic.” – Dionne Christian, Canvas, NZ Herald.
