There’s A Weta On My Sweater - He Wētā kei runga i tōku Paraka by Dawn McMillan
Illustrated by Stephanie Thatcher
Māori text by Ngaere Roberts
When Wētā clings to a little boy’s sweater, he scores a ride to school, picking up his insect friends along the way: cricket, beetle, centipede, spider… perfect timing for Show and Tell. But it’s chaos in the class as the critters take over!
Littlies will love poring over the eye-catching illustrations, which bring to life the chirpy rhymes on each page. At the end of the book there’s a spread of fun facts about the featured creatures.
Bonus: the book’s bilingual - English and Te Reo.
