Cody’s Unexpected Catch by Des Hunt

Cody’s Unexpected catch by Des Hunt. Pub.HarperCollins, 2011.

Catching whitebait on the West Coast of New Zealand is a serious business. This small 64 page book by Des Hunt captures that intensity while bringing in a number of conservation issues and some high drama action.

Cody is visiting Wiri and his mother beside a whitebaiting river. They are regulars and regulars protect their patch staunchly.

When Caitlin and her angry father muscle in the action starts. Not only that multi-coloured whitebait have started to appear in the river. What is going on?

Easy vocabulary, whole page colour illustrations by Justine Black and action writing make this book ideal for reluctant readers of primary and intermediate school age. All libraries should have books like this.
