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.
