"Little by little, the Taranaki forest is changing and the kōkako are finding it more difficult to find food and protect their chicks. Rats and possums are increasingly raiding nests, taking chicks and eggs, and the young kōkako Tamanui has lost his brothers and sisters. The forest is quiet, until he hears a kōkako call, but flying towards it, he is caught in a net. Taken to Mount Bruce, he adapts to a new environment, raises many chicks and becomes a cornerstone in the survival of the kōkako. The book is based on the true story of the kōkako Tamanui, which is on display at Puke Ariki in New Plymouth"--Publisher information.
