eye kiwiKeep an Eye on This Kiwi by Scott Tulloch. Pub. Scholastic, 2018.

Scott Tulloch engages with the very early reader in a way that is certain to capture their interest and imagination. Yes that is right he has written a poo, bum wees short book about our National bird, the kiwi.

Kiwi was looking for huhu grubs and they saw him coming and disguised themselves as dog poo. For that he is called a dumb-dumb and he doesn’t like it. In fact he is very sensitive about it.

When three worms disguise themselves as spaghetti will kiwi fall for it again? You can bet he will, but he is looking for revenge and discovers he has a haunted bum. See how this happens by reading the book.

Tulloch’s illustrations are superb and the characters of the huhu grubs and the worms are fantastic. Early readers do not come better than this. A good read-a loud and adults will love it too. The sort of story kids want you to read them over and over again.
