Tu Meke Tui! contains English and te reo Maori

There’s more to being a bird than flying!

Best-selling book Tu Meke Tui! is brought to life for the very first time. Join two unlikely heroes, Tere the excitable tui and Taitu the flightless takahe, 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.
