Description of this Book

"Little by little, the Taranaki forest is changing and the kokako are finding it more difficult to find food and protect their chicks. Rats and possums are increasingly raiding nests, taking chicks and eggs, and the young kokako Tamanui has lost his brothers and sisters. The forest is quiet, until he hears a kokako call, but flying towards it, he is caught in a net. Taken to Mount Bruce, he adapts to a new environment, raises many chicks and becomes a cornerstone in the survival of the kokako. The book is based on the true story of the kokako Tamanui, which is on display at Puke Ariki in New Plymouth"-
