How Maui Fished Up The North and South Islands (Maori Version). In the Editor's Note to the Patricia Grace's novel Potiki, Vilsoni Hereniko explains that "Potiki" has two meanings: youngest child, who in this novel, is Tokowaru-i-te-Marama (Toko) and Maui-Potiki, the demigod Maui-tikitiki-a-Taranga. Some of the events of Maui-Potiki parallel those of Toko. Familiarize yourself with the myth before reading Part One of the novel.
The creation myth of Maori legend is simply told in Peter's stunning, illustrative style. Bold design and brief text introduce the struggle of the children of Rangi and Papa as they try to part their parents and bring light to the world.
