mihi bellbirdNanny Mihi and the Bellbird by Melanie Drury, illus. Tracy Duncan. Pub. Oratia books, 2018.

A beautifully illustrated picture book about the love for the New Zealand bush and it’s native bird life.

Nanny Mihi has a whare in the bush. Her grandchildren visit during the school holidays. She teaches them to whistle a tune that the bellbird can learn and whistle back. It does. One holiday the bellbird does not show up. I wonder what is wrong? Read the book and find out.

Beautiful illustrations of the bush, the birds and of Nanny Mihi and her lovely restful face.
