Pukeko the Explorer

Pukeko is looking for somewhere new to dance.

He’s got moves for all his local places, so now he’s exploring up, down and all around.

It doesn’t take Pukeko long to learn there’s no place like his swampy home, but he sure has some good moves to bring back from his travels!

Written by Marie Langley and illustrated by Dean Raybould
