What happens when you let a group of writers loose ‘backstage’ in a museum? Te Papa invited twenty-two of New Zealand's best children's authors to spend a day in the Museum’s collections, and to chose one of the museum’s taonga (treasures) as a starting point for an imaginative journey.

The result is a truly original compendium of stories and poems for 8–12 year olds, with whimsical illustrations from award-winning Sarah Laing. It’s a unique collaboration between Te Papa Press and the Whitireia Creative Writing and Publishing Programmes.
