Pukeko is the first in a series of three picture books about a pukeko who loves to dance. The stories are entertaining and also contain some life lessons, such as learning that dancing on the road is not a good idea!

Illustrator Dean Raybould
The current editions of the Pukeko picture books, including the first publication of Pukeko the Explorer, have been illustrated by talented artist, Dean Raybould. Dean’s artistic style is quirky and entertaining, often thought provoking. At times it includes extra text such as speech bubbles that add another level of entertainment. The Pukeko books were his first foray into children’s picture book illustration.
