Description

Times are tough, and when Mum sends Trev off to the market to sell his bike, she is disgusted when he comes home with a handful of seeds and chucks them out the window. Next morning, Trev is amazed to see a giant kauri tree has grown up beside the house...and at the top of the tree he finds a taniwha's lair...Humorous Kiwi version of Jack and the Beanstalk - in which Mum resolves the problem at the end with her trusty chainsaw!
