Who's the best at weaving, the kuia or the spider? They decide to ask their grandchildren...Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa's 1981 classic story The Kuia and the Spider returns in a dual reo Māori and English text, with Hirini Melbourne's original translation.

A bilingual Māori and English edition of Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa's award-winning picture book.

Tērā tētahi kuia ko tāna mahi
he raranga whāriki, raranga kete hoki.
I te koko o tōna kīhini e noho ana he pūngāwerewere
ko tāna mahi he hanga whare tukutuku.

Mai i te putanga i te 1981, kua noho Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere a Patricia Grace rāua ko Robyn Kahukiwa hei tino paki tūroa nō Aotearoa.

Once there was a kuia who made mats and baskets
In the corner of her kitchen lived a spider who made webs.

Since its publication in 1981, Patricia Grace and Robyn Kahukiwa’s award-winning story about two old friends bickering over whose weaving is best has become a New Zealand classic.
