Kuwi’s Rowdy Crowd

Kuwi the Kiwi attempts to find a moment of peace and quiet in the chaos of parenthood, but everywhere she turns the volume just gets louder.

Tap-dancing tomtits, karate-kicking kōkako and other noisy native friends join in the rowdy fun, until Kuwi can’t take it anymore …

The third story in the bestselling Kuwi the Kiwi series by popular Kiwi author Kat Quin.

The quirky and quintessentially Kiwi illustrations will have both adults and children laughing out loud, with a humorous storyline familiar to parents everywhere. Young readers will be delighted by the fun noises they can make to match each illustration, and as they guess which creature will pop up next. The story also holds a heartwarming and subtle message about being happy with what you have.

The Kuwi the Kiwi™ series is a proud supporter of Kiwis for Kiwi Trust, donating 20 cents from each book sale to support kiwi conservation projects in New Zealand. The series has donated in excess of $15,000 so far.


Playcentre ~ “Onomatopoeia litter the pages, and Quin’s trademark alliteration make it a joy to read aloud. The rhyme and flow of the story keep it fresh for repeated readings, as do the endless hidden jokes within the illustrations. A handy pronunciation guide and dictionary of Māori terms has also been included on the back end page, making it a nice taster for anyone keen to introduce the next generation to te reo Māori.”
