About Us

Papawai Media Limited is a small, family owned company. Books have been a large part of all our lives and we want to be able to share quality New Zealand books with other New Zealanders. Recently we have bought Edugames and we are excited to offer this fabulous family of games, which we believe have a wonderful synergy with our books.

New Zealand is unique in many ways, not the least of which is that we are a long, skinny country bisected by, and surrounded by water. Papawai - land and water.

Our lives and, therefore, our stories, are bound up in our relationship with both the land and the sea. We live much of our lives between the land and the water. Papawai!

From the time of Kupe, the coming of the Māori, to the ships that brought the European settlers, our history has been moulded by the sea that carried us here and by the land from which we carved out our lives and livelihoods. Papawai. Land and sea.

Papawai Media - books by New Zealand writers. Stories about New Zealand. Games for New Zealanders.
