In this lively humorous story, lots of people are enjoying themselves at the beach when two hungry sandflies, Namu and Sandy, arrive looking for lunch. The sandflies are delighted to see so much exposed skin but not surprisingly, the beachgoers don’t want to be eaten! The text is enhanced by some Māori vocabulary, the meaning of which is strongly supported by the context.
