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?


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.


This is a really fun book that is easy to read and understand and is perfect for beginner te reo speakers and very young children.

Simon is the same little rabbit we have grown to know and love but this time we are lucky to have a Maori language edition of Poo Bum.
