  • About the Book
  • 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, as Maori and Europeans arrive with animals and tools, the pristine forest shrinks and the huia start to disappear—what will remain?

    12 Huia Birds is a captivating and uplifting celebration of one of New Zealand’s loveliest birds by an exciting author-illustrator team. 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.
