Long ago when Maui was born, his mother thought her child was dead and sorrowfully cast him on the waves - but the great god Tama carried him away to learn magic. When Maui returned to his mother, his brothers mocked him because he was so small, and refused to take him fishing...How clever Maui caught the biggest fish in the ocean and earned the title "Maui of the Thousand Tricks" is vividly told in this Polynesian folk tale. Frane Lessac's sunsplashed artwork will delight young readers everywhere
