Summary
Kopuwai has the shape of a man but the scales of a reptile and the head of a dog. He can stride swiftly across the land and his cave is strewn with people's bones, his favourite food. One day he captures Kaiamio and takes her for his wife. But Kaiamio is not only beautiful, she is clever too. She is determined to outwit this fearsome giant and make the land safe for her people.
