Adventures of Tupaia

The 250th anniversary of Captain Cooks' first
voyage to Aotearoa will be remembered in
October and this is my favourite book from the
range and it is designed for children’s greater
understanding but would also make a lovely
keepsake family gift.
“The incredible story of Tupaia, Tahitian
priest and navigator who sailed on board the
Endeavour with Captain Cook on his first voyage
to Aotearoa. Follow Tupaia as he grows up in
Ra’iatea, becoming a high ranking ‘arioi and
master navigator. Join him as he meets up with
Cook in Tahiti and sails as part of the crew across
the Paci c. Witness the encounters between
tangata whenua and the crew as the ship travels
around the coast and discover the important
role Tupaia plays as translator and cultural
interpreter.
Written in dramatic prose and verse
and stunningly illustrated in graphic style
to complete an essential book for all
NewZealanders.”
