"The story of how Pāua came to have his colours. Pāua is sad and lonely. The other sea creatures mock his slowness and unattractiveness. Tangaroa, god of the sea, takes pity on him and gives him a dazzling shell of many colours. But the jealousy of the other sea creatures results in Pāua still being miserable, so Tangaroa decides to hide his beauty within his shell, where only he can see it"--Publisher information.
