Description of this Electronic Book

In this modern retelling of the beloved myth of catching the sun, Maui is a schoolboy who lives with his mother
and four older brothers in a city where the day is never long enough to get things done.
Maui grasps the mantle:
Mum, I'm gonna catch that Sun for you.
That Sun who's always on the run.
With their woven flax net, the brothers drive to the pit where
the Sun lives, and make their play to slow the day
This bilingual book- in English and Maori - brings Maui
into the 21st century in a fun and colourful version.
