Nobody knows the shape of its nose
the cast of his toes
the cut of his clothes
nobody knows just how far his tail goes!

What does the Taniwha look like? He pēhea te āhua nei o te Taniwha rā?

But what do they look like?

Poet Mike Johnson and artist Jenn Rackham come together to explore this great mystery. To be read aloud for pleasure, or used as an early reader, Taniwha will delight both young and old.
