🌝🌛 Book description:
“One evening Manaaki discovers te Marama (the Moon) high up in the starry sky. But when in rains, there is no “Marama” and even when the clouds clear he’s nowhere to be seen. Will Marama ever come back?
I tētahi pō ka kite a Manaaki kua eke te Marama ki runga rawa o te rangi. Engari ka ua ana, kāore he “Maama”, ā, ahakoa ka kore atu ngā kapua kua kore e kitea atu. Ka hoki mai anō te Marama?”
