Author(s): Anne Kayes
What happens when you find yourself on a dangerous journey, and you’re expected to be the hero? Who can help when you’re faced with vicious creatures that are meant to be extinct or people who don’t care whether you live or die?
The Tūī Street kids are writing ‘hero’s journey’ stories at school, but soon find themselves involved in adventures more difficult than they could ever have imagined.
This is a stand-alone book and therefore you do not have to have read the first book, Tui Street Tales. However, we recommend you do.
"The kids from Tui Street make a welcome return as more awe-inspiring adventures await readers looking for a little - a lot - of magic." - Dionne Christian, Canvas, NZ Herald.
