Wot Knot You Got? Mophead’s Guide to Life by Selina Tusitala Marsh

Selina wakes up one morning with a tangling knotty problem that ends up taking over all aspects of her life. How can she get out of a knot so tight? But then she remembers all the kids who write to her asking tough questions, and she resolves to help them with their knots, and in doing so, she just might help herself with her own knot.

Selina was New Zealand’s Poet Laureate in 2017, and her previous Mophead books have won numerous awards. Her work breathes life, creativity and fun, and her latest book is no exception. It’s a delight from the cover to the end pages and everything in between, with her words and illustrations creating a piece of book with special magic, that will definitely put a smile on your dial.

Wot Knot You Got? is a quirky, illustrated self-help book that humorously unravels the knots that can keep us up at night from one of Aotearoa’s most joyful authors. Selina’s moppy mayhem is infectious and uplifting in a book that will appeal to anyone from eight to eighty. And beneath all the creative fun, there are some great strategies for anyone in a dark place with a twisty knot that is getting them down.
