Rewi the Kiwi by Jean Dickinson


Rewi the Kiwi by Jean Dickinson

Why is the kiwi so different from other birds? The answer is revealed in this rhyming story about Rewi the Kiwi. Today Rewi is a rather solitary fellow, creeping through the undergrowth in remote parts of New Zealand, but once he was a most outgoing, neighbourly bird, a master of the air and a hot contender for the bird speed record.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
