Author Biography

Kat Quin is a best-selling and award-winning author, illustrator and designer from the Waikato, where she lives with her partner and their six children. The Kuwi and Friends Maori Picture Dictionary was inspired by her children, who have been passionately learning te reo Maori at school. Her hope is that this book will provide an accessible and practical way to help whanau (family members) feel confident to use more Maori words in the home. Kat first worked with Pania Papa at the age of eighteen, when she was entrusted with the illustration of Maori language resources for Te Ara Reo Maori, developed by Takatu Associates Ltd. Almost twenty years later, they still work closely together on various educational projects.
