From NZ Booklovers ~ In this gorgeous picture book by Kate Preece, a cheeky young weka goes for a wander around the Chatham Islands hoping to make new friends and meets eleven precious endangered birds. In the rhyming text she has captured one aspect of each bird’s appearance or behaviour that makes it special e.g. a plump Chathams’ Island pigeon eats its fill of hoho fruit, an assertive tiny black robin puffs out its chest, a mollymawk skims effortlessly over the water with its wide-stretching wings, and the tomtit’s song is repetitive and melodious.
