Previously published in hardback in English, this popular book is now back with Māori text in a quality paperback.
The Listener named the first edition one of its Top 50 Children’s Books of 2016, and called it: “A striking reminder of the many ways this beautiful bird was wiped out.”
12 beautiful huia birds play and sing in the forest. But is that a canoe arriving? A rat sniffling? A ship on the horizon?
One by one, the huia start to disappear – what will remain?
12 Huia Birds is a captivating celebration of one of our loveliest birds.
Through gentle rhyme and colourful imagery it subtly conveys an environmental message – and includes links to a 12 Huia Birds app, educational resources and games.
