Te Kirihimete i whakakorea
Te Kirihimete i whakakorea – by Huia, illustrated by Isobel Te Aho-White
KUA WHAKAKOREA TE KIRIHIMETE
Kāore he whakapaipai, kāore he purini, kāore he rākau pīataata, kāore hoki he perehana.
Kua mutu a Hana! He kino i tērā tau, kua pau tana hau.
Me mahitahi ngā tamariki ki te āwhina i a Hana! Mā rātou pea e tohu ai te kirihimete?
There are just a few days to go before Christmas, and everyone’s busy putting up decorations, preparing food and getting ready for the big day. Then comes the shock news – Santa’s cancelled Christmas. Santa had so many disasters last year that he can’t face it again, and he’s quit.
CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED. No tinsel, no pudding, no twinkling tree and definitely no presents.
The elves try everything, but they can’t get him to change his mind. In this Aotearoa Christmas picture book, the kids come up with a clever plan and amazing gadgets to get Christmas back on and Santa back in the sleigh delivering presents.
