Melu has always been different. While the other mules stubbornly clip-clop around the sun-baked hills, Melu dreams of swimming in the glittering green sea below. But it will take more than stubbornness for Melu to reach the glittering green sea.
Like many of my stories, Melu is about friendship and following your own unique path.
It has been released as a stunning hardcover, a paperback edition, in Te Reo as Ko Meru and in German.
The illustrations by Ali Teo and John O’Reilly are exceptionally beautiful.
Melu won the 2013 NZ Post Children’s Choice Award.
It was also a Storylines Notable Book and has been published in Germany.
