  1. Reading Warrior

    David Riley’s “Black Magic” is a masterpiece of storytelling, weaving together ancient Polynesian voyages and the birth of New Zealand’s iconic sports uniform into a captivating narrative that will make every Kiwi’s heart swell with pride. Munro Te Whata’s stunning illustrations breathe life into the characters and events, creating a visual feast that perfectly complements David’s words. This book’s brilliant message about identity, representation, and cultural heritage is a must-read for all ages, reminding us of the power and significance behind the black jersey and silver fern that represent Aotearoa on the world stage.
