Witi Ihimaera's lively Matariki story - The Astromancer - translated into te reo Māori by Heni Jacob.

E kimi ana a Te Kōkōrangi i ētahi pia hou tokowhā hei ako i ngā kōrero o Matariki me te maramataka. Kōwhiria ana ētahi tama tokotoru, me tētahi kōtiro, he pani, ko Ariā te ingoa. Tohe ana a Ariā kia haere anō ko tana kurī haunga i tōna taha. Ka āhua hōhā a Ariā i nga akoranga, kāore hoki ia e pai kia tohutohungia ia.

Engari kua noho mōrearea te iwi. Taihoa pea rātou ka tino raru i a Ruatapu Te Pukurua. Āe rānei mā Ariā anō te iwi e whakaora?

The Astromancer is looking for four new apprentices to learn about Matariki and the Maramataka calendar. She chooses three boys and an orphan girl, Ariā, who will come only if she can bring her smelly dog. Ariā, though, is bored by the lessons, and she doesn’t want to be told what to do.

But these are dangerous times, and Ruatapu the Ravenous is about to threaten the safety of the whole tribe. Will Ariā step up to save them?

This book is written entirely in te reo Māori. For the English edition, look for The Astromancer: The Rising of Matariki.
