'Tūī Street Heroes' – Exciting Adventures with Teachers' Notes
Tūī Street Heroes is the sequel to award-winning Tūī Street Tales, winner of the 2016 Storylines Tom Fitzgibbon Award. It can be read as a 'stand-alone' text or as a sequel. The stories are set in NZ where the kids in Tūī Street find themselves involved in mysterious adventures. The stories quickly hook readers, characters are ethnically diverse, and girls are as adventurous as boys. Here's the blurb for Tūī Street Heroes:
What happens when you find yourself on a dangerous journey, and you’re expected to be the hero? Who can help when you’re faced with vicious creatures that are meant to be extinct or people who don’t care whether you live or die? The Tūī Street kids are writing ‘hero’s journey’ stories at school, but soon find themselves involved in adventures more difficult than they could ever have imagined.
“The kids from Tūī Street make a welcome return as more awe-inspiring adventures await readers looking for a little - a lot - of magic.” – Dionne Christian, Canvas, NZ Herald.
