Jeremy is starting a new school. He is a bit nervous and a lot worried but the children in this class are welcoming. Every time he thinks he can’t take part they say ‘Of course you can!’ and so he plays soccer, joins in the Kapa Haka and even takes part in the cross country … But when it comes to swimming the children tell him not to do it.

Of Course You Can! – Ka Taea Tonu e Koe! was published by One Tree House Publishing in May 2018.  The story was written by Karen Hinge and the book also features a Maori text by Ngaere Roberts. I provided the illustrations.
