Both b...rothers will end up on the bloody battlefields of France, but their journeys there are very different. And what they experience at the front line will challenge the beliefs that led them there"--Publisher information. Suggested level: intermediate, junior secondary.

              An adventurous young man called Mitai lives with his seven handsome brothers in the village of Maketu. He watches his brothers become bewitched by seven beautiful women, and under their spell, the brothers no longer eat, look after themselves, work in their gardens or hunt. Reali...sing the women are patupaiarehe, fairy women, he knows they must be cast far away. They are given to Urutengangana, the god of the stars, and he places the patupaiarehe in the heavens farthest from the earth. Yet once a year, at winter solstice, he allows their beauty to shine in the eastern sky.

              At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month each year New Zealanders remember the end of the First World War. Armistice Day, Philippa Werry's new book for children, commemorates the day when fighting stopped in Europe. Partnered with best-selling Anzac Day,... it makes an excellent reference for the whole family. Kiwi soldiers returned home to a terrible influenza epidemic, as the population grieved for the loss of life. Memorials were erected and families sought to return to the battlefields overseas to visit graves of their loved ones. Well researched and drawing on illustration, photographs and text from various sources, this is a gripping, moving description of the aftermath of war in Europe, giving children a clear understanding of the establishment of the United Nations and New Zealand's role in international peacekeeping.
