WINNER, Te Kura Pounamu Award, New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, 2017
In a chaotic lab, with a sheep as an assistant, a girl mixes ingredients as diverse as ‘teeth bling from a retired rapper’, ‘three pints of swooshy night air’ and ‘a snippet from a sheep’s fringe’. The girl dreams of inventing a new marble and claiming a place in The Book of Marbles. So, she lights up the stoves, prepares the mix, waits for the reaction and, with a bang, marbles that have never been seen before fill the room.
This is the Māori-language version of The Marble Maker, translated by Kawata Teepa.
