Kia Hou Taku Tou! – I Need a New Bum! by Dawn McMillan, Illustrator: Ross Kinnaird


Translated by Stephanie Huriana Fong

To mark ten years since the first publication of I Need a New Bum!, and Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2022, Oratia is delighted to present this children’s favourite in a new bilingual edition.

All of the colourful and active main text is in Māori, following our hero as he searches for a tou hou/new bum, after finding that his one has a crack.

‘Subtitles’ in English run at the bottom of the page to help readers of all ages to understand and learn.

After editions in Chinese, Italian, Korean and Portuguese, it’s a pleasure to ‘bring the bum home’ into Stephanie Fong’s gorgeous rhyming reo.
