            Velvet & Elvis: A Mother & Son Story of New Zealand's Longfin Eels
             

            Velvet & Elvis: A Mother & Son Story of New Zealand's Longfin Eels (Paperback)

            The story relates the life cycle of our long fin eels through the characters Velvet and her son Elvis in an anthropomorphic manner. So, from that point of view the story is fictional, but the account of the life of NZ long fin eels, their life-cycle, threats to their survival, et...c. are all entirely non-fiction. The book includes questions for teachers or parents to use to provoke children to think about the eels and their lives, and why and how they are endangered. It is essentially an educational book, and while it is aimed at children, many adults will find the story and information fascinating.

            This beautifully illustrated "book of nature" describes the plant species, animals, birds, fish and insects that make their home at Waitangi. It tells the story of Mrs Busby's Norfolk Pine and its twin on the other side of the harbour. Other stalwart trees like Puriri and Kauri a...lso make starring appearances. The Camellia trees have a romantic story. Planted by the Busbys in 1833, from stock in London and Sydney, they still flourish and bloom profusely each winter. The birds are a particular feature with the Kiwi and Kereru having iconic status. There is also the cheeky fantail and the more formal parson bird, the Tui. The life and times of the tiny fish, the banded Kokopu and the many eels will be a surprise.
