"Tulevai and the Sea" by Joy Cowley
Thomas has read this legend which is retold by one of New Zealand's best known children's authors. Folau acts as DJ in his first podcast. Both boys are Year 5 students from Room 16. Tulevai and the Sea, was written by Joy Cowley and illustrated by Manu Smith, (English and Maori editions). In this story a mother's love is greater than the sea. The sea wants the strong young boy who is fishing in his boat for itself; unable to lure him the sea enlists the help of the wind to sink his canoe. His mother's love is strong enough to push back the sea, revealing terrible monsters, before finding her son crying in a coral forest.
