    Free Juice

    by Giselle Fortune 

    JJ-46_medium

    Jack finds himself in a dilemma when his friend Luke encourages him to take some juice from an opened box of cartons at school. This story gives insight into Jack’s thinking and his feelings – in particular, his feelings about his own behaviour and why the other children don’t seem worried about what they have done. The text explores concepts
    of honesty, bravery, and self-awareness and is well worth revisiting over more than one reading session.

    The gulls.

    The Gulls of Sulphur Bay

    by Sue Gibbison 

    JJ-46_medium

    Sulphur Bay, at the southern end of Lake Rotorua, is a wildlife reserve. Its hot springs make the area popular with many water birds, but the sulphur in the springs also causes some problems for them. This article describes how the gulls live in this unique environment. There are two other items in this Junior Journal linked to Lake Rotorua. They are “The Gulls of Mokoia Island” and a retelling of the legend of Hinemoa and Tūtānekai.

    The stowaway.

    The Stowaway

    by Katie Furze 

    JJ 45 cover

    Walter is a cat who catches mice at the factory next door to his home. He has friends at the factory who, like his family, are very fond of him. When he doesn’t come home for his dinner, the family is worried and checks with the factory workers. Where can Walter be? The story shifts back in time to show the reader that Walter has been accidentally trapped in a shipping container. He arrives in Australia many days later and, thanks to a kindly quarantine officer, he is returned to his family. A page at the end of the story includes a map, a photo, and some information about the real cat that “The Stowaway” is based on.

    Uira

    JJ 45 cover

    This short, dramatic poem is in te reo Māori with an accompanying English interpretation. It describes the sights and sounds of lightning as Tāwhirimātea performs a haka.

When his brothers separated his parents to let light into the world, Tāwhirimātea caused violent storms. He is the Atua of the winds, clouds, rain, hail, snow, and storms. “Atua” refers to ancestors who have a continued influence on people’s lives.
