Kiwi: The Real Story

by Annemarie Florain & Heather Hunt

Ships within 3-5 Working Days


A collaboration between author Annemarie Florian and illustrator Heather Hunt, Kiwi: the real story offers a memorable reading experience for readers of all ages.

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, courting, 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.
