Have you ever wondered where the music for our National Anthem came from? One wintry night in Lawrence, Otago, school principal John Joseph Woods read about a competition to compose an anthem. He won, and his tune became the music for God Defend New Zealand. In this delightfully imaginative story, it is not only people who like John Joe’s tune – his animal friends also think it a big success! By Tania Atkinson and Christine Ross
