Itipurú y el monstruo del océano combines elements about New Zealand’s nature and endangered animals with elements of Maori mythology. It is a fantasy tale with a universal message about bravery in the face of seemingly impossible challenges, sacrifice for loved ones and faith. Itipurú is the smallest chick in a blue penguin colony in New Zealand and he cannot swim. He is still molting and has baby feathers. When an earthquake shatters the island, Itipurú is separated from his family. He must reach the new colony to survive, but will he make it with a vicious sea monster between him and his family?

Themes: family, perseverance, self-assurance and confidence in one’s abilities, selflessness, faith, Maori mythology, little blue penguins
