A spectacular illustrated picture book exploring New Zealand’s unique landscapes and its incredible wildlife by the award-winning author of Aotearoa: The New Zealand Story.
Long before waka touched Aotearoa’s shores, the land of the long white cloud was home to an array of creatures uniquely adapted to its environments and protected by its isolation.
Encounter New Zealand's incredible wildlife in this spectacular visual exploration.
Journey through ocean, sky and land to meet a marvellous range of organisms.
Discover fascinating facts, and learn how we influence the survival of our living treasures.
In this magnificent companion volume to Aotearoa: The New Zealand Story, Gavin Bishop weaves a compelling visual narrative of our land, our people and our wildlife — past, present and future.
“It is destined to become a classic, a book that should take pride of place in homes, classrooms and libraries around the country. Ostensibly for children, it is for everyone, especially those with an interest in New Zealand wildlife from our seas through to our homes. You can’t read it in one sitting—nor would you want to. It is a treasure box to be delved into, each page read and looked at—and looked at again—with wonder, care and amazement. Amazement that Aotearoa New Zealand is home to such an array of species; amazement that one person was able to bring all this together in vivid and rich detail...it really is a stunning achievement.”
