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 and uplifting celebration of one of our 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.
