Book Review

By Melinda Szymanik and Isobel Joy Te Aho-White

Everyone in the forest needs a hero at some stage and Kiwi always attends as fast as his little legs will take him. So full of heart and spirit of kindness to be of assistance…but it never quite seems to work out for a bird that’s flightless, with short legs and limited capacity…until he meets Bat. Bat reminds Kiwi that everyone needs a friend and has a plan to hatch – BATKIWI! Will their plan work? Will they be the heroes of the day? Read-aloud times will be enriched with this adventurous tale and will cheer little Kiwi on for sure! “Kiwi’s beak was sharp, his legs were strong, his feathers were hairy, and his heart beat true. More than anything, he desired to help others. To do good. To save the day… One night, as the moon rose high, a call came over the bush telegraph, tweet by tweet, from tree to tree. “Help! Emergency! We need a hero! Kiwi ran as fast as his sturdy legs could carry him. He was pretty fast ... but not fast enough ...” RRP $19.99
