The Taniwha of Wellington Harbour, by Moira Wairama, retells the legend of Whātaitai and Ngake.
Whātaitai and Ngake are two taniwha who live in a beautiful lake. But one day Ngake breaks free to the ocean and leaves his friend behind. His actions have far-reaching consequences that shape the landscape of Wellington; Aotearoa’s capital city.
Discover the legend of how Wellington Harbour was created in this beautifully illustrated paperback. If you have seen the dramatic Pepper’s Ghost rendition of this legend at Wellington Museum then this book is the perfect souvenir.
