Paraweta

By Stephanie Blake
Illustrated by Stephanie Blake

Gecko Press’s cheekiest rabbit is now in te reo Maori.

A te reo Maori edition of this worldwide favourite about a little rabbit who could only say one thing... In the morning his mother would say, ‘Time to get up, my little rabbit!’ He’d reply: ‘Poo bum!’ At lunchtime his father would say, ‘Eat your spinach, my little rabbit!’ He’d reply: ‘Poo bum!’ One day, he meets a hungry wolf. Will the little rabbit learn his lesson once and for all?

  • Irreverent fun for any New Zealand child—those who’ve grown up speaking Maori, those who are learning, and fans of Poo Bum
  • A strong market in kohanga reo and kura kaupapa because of the language play and variety of registers—from paraweta (poo bum) and patero (fart) to mokarakara (exquisite)!
  • The English edition of Poo Bum has sold nearly 60,000 copies

About the author

Stephanie Blake’s passion for writing and illustrating began in childhood when she created books for her brothers and sisters as birthday presents. As a child, she also fell in love with the books of Dr. Seuss, Ludwig Bemelmans, and William Steig. After moving to France, she discovered other writers and artists whose work continued to inspire her stories and drawings. She is the author and illustrator of dozens of highly successful books in France, many of them children’s favourites.
