Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A delightful multicultural story, available in English and Maori language editions. Many years ago, a Maori couple built a little hall where people could gather. It was warm and welcoming, with walls that folded all the way round like wooden arms. Through the years, the hall houses a church, a shoemaker, a doctor, a dressmaker, a dance studio and finally becomes a meeting place for people who had travelled from countries far away.

Picture story book for children.

Also published in Māori as: Poupou tauawhi.
