Description of this Book

It's the holidays, and Awatea is staying with his grandparents at the beach. He's got lots of time and freedom to explore, visit the tree house and have adventures with Carrot, the talking parrot. Awatea catches fish, cooks over a campfire and spends a stormy night in the tree house with Carrot for company. When fending off some territorial magpies and keeping an eye on a pair of leopard seals, Awatea and Carrot notice signs of poachers. So Awatea and his friends at the beach work out a plan to stop them.
