The first great-grandchild of the whanau, she was loved by all her relatives except the one whose love she needed most  her great-grandfather.Moving effortlessly between mythology and realism, pathos and comedy, The Whale Rider will delight readers of all ages. Since its publication in 1987, The Whale Rider has been reprinted numerous times and has become one of Witi IhimaeraÂs best-loved books.
