Daniel is nervous on his first day at school but through the class activities that mark the Matariki Festival he learns that it is a time of sharing and beginning new friendships. He learns the true importance of the Maori New Year. Beautifully illustrated by one of our best-known and award-winning artists. First published in English in May 2014, Daniel's Matariki Feast was released in a Maori language edition in 2015. This edition (2021) is published in English, Maori and Pinyin in partnership with the organisers of New Zealand Chinese Language Week, which in 2021 is being held from 26 September to 2 October.
