The latest releases from our Kiwi authors

Whilst Penguin publishes some of the biggest and best authors from all around the world, we love our very own homegrown New Zealand publishing most especially.

  • An unforgettable, insightful and deeply humane memoir from a New Zealand paediatrician who has committed his life to the care and wellbeing of young people.

  • Hovering hawks, swooping falcons and softly calling morepork. A close look at the predatory birds of New Zealand - many of them endangered.

  • Badjelly, the baddest witch in all the world, is coming to get you! This full-colour, hardback gift edition of Spike Milligan's hilarious and beloved fairy story comes with an audio CD of the famous BBC radio play so that readers can listen and read along.
