Author Name    Cleary, Frances.

Title   A POCKETFUL OF YEARS. ANOTHER MRS KINGI BOOK.

Publisher    Collins, Auckland, New Zealand, 1975, first edition.

Seller ID   20600

166 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "Mrs Kingi, the beloved heroine of 'This Mrs Kingi', continues her story in this delightful sequel. As she looks back on her seventy years in the small Bay of Islands area (New Zealand) that has been her home - and that of her family - for generations, Mrs Kingi ponders on the changes she has seen. Typical of these is the family of her daughter Lizzie and husband Sam. Flash and Gordon, the twins born at the end of the earlier book, are now stu rdy youngsters. Les, the oldest and Mrs Kingi's secret favourite, is away at school on a scholarship, with his future assured; and the other children are normal and healthy. Only Gus is a problem, and his grandmother worries that he may t u r n o u t t o be a bad Maori if his talent for carving and drawing is not encouraged. That is Mrs Kingi's strength, and her weakness: that she cares about everybody and everything in her immediate vicinity, from her friend Mrs Wiki's dog to the s ta te of t he wo rld in general. But there is one thing she can and does do, this 'wrinkled-up old Maori woman of no importance', as she calls herself. When faced with an agonising decision under the pressure of other people, Mrs Kingi accep ts wha t s h e f eel s a r e h er responsbilities - not only to her close family, but to all her people. The book ends on a triumphant note, as the whole district celebrates Mrs Kingi's seventieth birthday and, on the happiest day of her life, youn g G us g ives h er t he b est gi ft o f all." Light edge wear, book slightly cocked, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, three tiny corner creases. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, ligh t fa ding to sp ine colo r. V ery Goo d/Ver y Good
