Mophead Tu: The Queen's Poem
In the sequel to the bestselling Mophead, Selina is invited to read a poem for the Queen in Westminster Abbey. Someone at work calls her a sellout. What will she do?
In her bestselling and award-winning book, Mophead, poet laureate and fast talking PI Selina Tusitala Marsh recounted her experience growing up Pasifika in Aotearoa and realising how her (and your) difference can make a difference.
In Mophead Tu, Selina is crowned Commonwealth Poet and invited to perform for the Queen in Westminster Abbey. But when someone at work calls her a "sellout", Selina starts doubting herself. Can she stand with her people who struggled against the Queen . . . and still serve the Queen?
From the sinking islands in the South Seas to the smoggy streets of London, Mophead Tu: The Queen’s Poem is a hilariously thought-provoking take on colonial histories and one poet’s journey to bridge the divide.
