About seven hundred years ago there lived a very dangerous creature that lived in the mighty lake taupo it was the taniwha. The taniwha would gobble anyone who would emerge near by. Their lived a little village on the edge of the mighty lake Taupo. In the village there was a boy called Tamarereti. One day Tamarereti awoke and went to check his kete so that he could see that if there is some delish fish.When he tipped it down there was nothing, so Tamarereti decided to go out fishing to get some fish for him and his family.
Tamarereti grabbed all the fishing gear he had got and started sailing across the the mighty huge sea. After he caught three tremendous shiny scaly fish the wind died so Tamarereti deiced to a nap. Later that day after hours and hours the waka drifted itself and beached into the other side of the land. After Tamarereti awoke from his nap he was anxious because the taniwha would come and gobble him up.
