Customer on KiwiReviews ~ “This is a lovely story about a Mum who goes on a hunt to find something to eat for her new baby kiwi, Huwi. It is a lovely tale of Huwi who doesn’t want to eat his friends out in the forest and instead finds his clever mum makes him some lovely vegetarian options instead.

The first thing that caught my attention in this book was the beautiful illustrations. The illustrations show a beautifully detailed picture of where you can find some native kiwi bugs/insects for Huwi to eat and on the next page simple yet very effective illustrations of ways he could eat them. My class of three and four year olds found the illustrations hilarious such as snail sushi or eel ecclair. It really is a great play on words and brought a lot of laughter to the class.

I thought this was a beautiful way to showcase some popular kiwi dishes and captures really well what a lot of kiwi kids know and love to eat at home. It felt like it showed our food culture summed up in one children’s book!”
