  3. 3. In the beginning Pukeko was white. He was very greedy and stole food from the other birds and animals. Morgan 4
  4. 4. Ethan One day Pukeko was walking through the swamp when he saw a beautiful butterfly. He was jealous. “What a colourful butterfly. I wish I was that pretty,” said Pukeko. 5
  5. 5. Pukeko carried on walking through the swamp and saw a tui. “What a beautiful tui. I wish I was that fancy,” said Pukeko. Sean 6
  6. 6. Pukeko carried on walking and looked up and saw the bright blue sky. “What a lovely colour. I wish I was that bright,” said Pukeko. “I know I will fly up and steal it.” Jett Pukeko flew as high as he could but he couldn’t reach it because he wasn’t a good flier. 7
  7. 7. Sebastian Pukeko sulked and carried on walking. He came upon a puddle in the swamp and saw the blue sky reflected in it. “The blue is in the water. I can paint myself blue with this,” said Pukeko. Pukeko grabbed a feather, dipped it in the water and painted his feathers blue but he couldn't reach his bottom so it stayed white! 8
  8. 8. Rangi, God of the sky, saw what Pukeko had done and was CROSS that he had stolen his blue. So he decided to teach him a lesson. “I will boil up the water in the puddle so that when Pukeko returns he will burn himself!” rumbled Rangi. Moses 9
  9. 9. The next day when Pukeko jumped into the puddle. He burnt his legs and his beak so badly they turned red. Pukeko felt sorry for himself and went to hide in the long grass and flax. Rene 10
  10. 10. Zach So that is why Pukeko has blue feathers, a white bottom, red legs and beak and why he stays out of the water but keeps to the banks. 11
