Did you hear the one about the heading dog who split in half? Or the Phantom Canoe? or the Legend of Tunnel Beach? They're all part of New Zealand's wild and woolly folklore - retold and illustrated in a new graphic novel. The anthology is a collaboration between old friends - writer Dr Michael Brown, and comics artist Mat Tait.They explain what started them off researching and retelling these old yarns.

The Heading Dog Who Split In Half is published by Potton & Burton.
