Abstract:

"Once upon a time some fairy tales came to Tui Street and visited the people who lived there. There were some problems in the street: Jack’s mother had secrets, the creek had dried up and Terri was being cyber-bullied, to name a few. Following a fairy tale project at school, the children began to notice fairy tale themes to these problems. They had to explore the difference between fact and possibility as they sought answers. Much was at risk: a friend’s safety, a morepork’s life, the privacy of a Pacific princess. Added to this was the involvement of Aotearoa’s landscape, birdlife and folklore. Luckily, facing challenges led to unexpected achievements, such as coaching a wheelchair soccer team, pacifying a wild creature from Maori folklore and re-thinking stereotypes about giants. Everyone lived happily ever after. Well, as much as can be expected when you have homework and dishes to do. Tui Street Tales is a collection of seven stories set in New Zealand "--Publisher's website.
