Finalist, Picture Book category, New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, 2015
This is a touching tale of the special bond between a father and daughter and their imaginative bedtime stories. In this picture book, as Dad tucks his daughter into bed, he tells her fantastically imaginative stories about the keys on his key ring and what they unlock – from a zippenburger that takes him to work, to a rocket to collect space noodles, a treasure box in the jungle, a chocolate biscuit factory where he taste tests all the biscuits, and a paddock where he rides a woolly mammoth that only eats yellow food.
A Māori-language version is also available, Ngā Kī.
