Finalist, Best Picture Book, New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards, 2013
It’s almost Guy Fawkes Night, and at the school speech competition Andy talks about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. The children cheer excitedly, thinking Andy will win the contest. But then, Aroha gets up, wearing a white feather in her hair, and tells the story of another fifth of November – the invasion of Parihaka in 1881.
This is a beautifully illustrated, poignant story that recounts a key event in Aotearoa New Zealand’s history.
A Māori-language version is also available, Maumahara ki tērā Nōema.
