There’s more to being a bird than flying!

Best-selling book Tu Meke Tūī! is brought to life for the very first time. Join two unlikely heroes, Tere the excitable tūī and Taitū the flightless takahē, as they work together to outwit Stan, the sly stoat, who has a beady eye on our native birds for his dinner.

This beautiful story will teach young tamariki about friendship, courage and discovering that sometimes it’s our differences that make us truly special.
