With gentle, evocative illustrations, a lively layout and very informative text, Sandra Morris introduces fourteen of New Zealand's most interesting birds to young readers.
From a variety of habitats, including the mountains, forest, coast and sea, the birds behaviour, communication and feeding patterns are described, noting current status if endangered, as well as Maori legend and tradition, and additional interesting, often quirky facts.
First published nearly 20 years ago, this charming classic was a finalist in both the Aim Children's Book Awards and the Non Fiction Library awards.
