Ko Flit, Te Tīrairaka me Ngā Hēki Muna (Flit the Fantail and the Mystery Eggs Maori Edition)
Author(s): Kat Merewether; Ngaere Roberts
Flit has found some eggs ... but whose could they be? It is a misty morning in the forest. Flit the fantail chick is practising his landings. Flap, flop, slip, FLIP. Flit slips on something slippery and round. He has stumbled upon eight rubbery white eggs. Join Flit and his friends, Kiki the kaka, rascally robins Bit and Bob, Keri the kiwi and wise old Ruru as they exercise some teamwork. Can they figure out who the mystery eggs belong to? Te Reo edition.
While practising his landings, Flit the Fantail stumbles upon a collection of mysterious eggs. They’re white and rubbery! Thinking they’ve fallen from a nest, Flit asks all his native bird friends who the eggs belong to but their eggs are all quite different. From kaka to black robins and even a giant Kiwi egg (that could fit all of the smaller eggs inside!), Flit and his friends keep searching high and low to find the parents - and then the eggs hatch! Kat Merewether has written another lovely addition to the Flit series. The descriptions of the different types of eggs and details about the different nesting habits of our native wildlife make this a great book for discussion. With bright illustrations filled with adorable characters, Flit the Fantail and the Mystery Eggs is must have.
