Nana dreams of having a shed in her garden. Despite the passing of time, the parts for the shed lie in a pile on her lawn. Her grandson, Jacob, and his friend, Max, take matters into their own hands. Using some ingenuity and the sort of imagination that makes anything possible, they build the shed that Nana has always wanted.
Both books will particularly appeal to Kiwi kids.
“Nana’s Shed” is a story that reflects Kiwi ingenuity and the can-do attitude of the two little boys who successfully resolve Nana's problem. It’s about building things.
“Bella’s Fringe” reflects Kiwi humour and chips away at the gender stereotyping of young girls.
Both books will appeal to youngsters who have an interest in New Zealand plants and animals, activities such as searching for hidden objects, learning their names in te roe Māori, counting in English and te reo, or snuggling up and reading with their parents or grandparents.
Young readers who have just mastered reading will also enjoy the easy flow of its rhyming couplets and vivid, colourful illustrations.
