Kei te hiahia tenei tamaiti ki te whakaatu ki a Hana Koko me pehea te whakanui i te Kirihimete ki Aotearoa! I te wa e whakarite ana te katoa mo te Kirihimete, kei te awangawanga tetahi tamaiti. Kei te mohio a Hana Koko kei te raumati te tuakoi tonga o te ao? Ka pehea mehemea ka wera rawa ia? Ka whakatau ia ki te tuku karere ki a ia.
