A genuinely spooky book that has fascinating insights into Maori belief and is, simply, a really good story. Rewi's family has moved to an old house owned by his mother's family. Right from the start Rewi, who is gifted with an extra sense, knows that something is wrong. The morepork (kehua) screeches its warning, his nightmares begin, and his little sister falls mysteriously ill. Rewi must uncover the mystery behind these events to understand what can be done to save her. The answer takes us straight to the heart of Maori spiritual belief.
