KIWI: the real story

While the kiwi is often depicted as an endangered national symbol in need of our protection, this book takes a dramatically different route.  Kiwi : The Real Story invites the reader into the secret night world of the North Island brown kiwi, illuminating the facts about its habitat, diet, dating and mating, and parenting.   Beautiful illustrations accompany a story that can be read on two levels: For young children a bold rhythmic verse describes kiwi in action in the bush, while the non-fiction narrative provides older readers with added insight into kiwi biology and behaviour.  The combination of verse, factual text and bold expressive pictures harmonise in a new and intriguing view of a bird we feel we know so well, yet have much still to learn about.
