    Best Mates

    SJ L2 cover image Aug 15

    by Paora Tibble

    illustrations by Scott Pearson

    This poignant story, told with subtle humour, is about Mana coming to terms with the fact that his best mate is leaving town. At the same time, he has to deal with the news of the imminent arrival of a baby brother or sister. “Best Mates” is a sequel to “Iron Tamariki” (SJ L2 June 2014). Students who have read the earlier story will enjoy meeting Mana and members of his whānau again.
