On the Road to Tuapeka
Heka and Reka (both weka) catch a double-decker to Tuapeka! The two weka friends catch Possum Pete's double-decker bus on the road to Tuapeka ...and along the way they pick up Hedgy Hog, Dodgy Dog and Whistling Frog. But when a strange little man in a caravan invites them to share his barbecue - they soon realise they are to BE the barbecue, and skedaddle ...all the way to Tuapeka.
