Paua is sad and lonely. The other sea creatures mock his slowness and unattractiveness. Tangaroa, god of the sea, takes pity on him and gives him a dazzling shell of many colours. But the jealousy of the other sea creatures results in Paua still being miserable, so Tangaroa decides to hide his beauty within his shell, where only he can see it. - Refreshed and redesigned edition of this popular bilingual story by Maori scholar and author/illustrator, Mere Whaanga - Tangaroa's Gift has been in print for over 25 years and was a finalist in the 1991 Children's Book Awards, the Russell Clark award for illustration and the Esther Glen award for children's literature
