Tu Meke Tuatara (Hard Cover Board Book)


Tu Meke Tuatara is a classic Kiwi tale.

Tahi Tuatara is feeling ever so glum and bored. Roger Ruru is trying to cheer him up but nothing is working. Then they hear a cry for help. The two friends race off to help and Tahi discovers helping others helps him feel better. This book has themes of friendship, helping others and empathy.

The illustrations are by Flox (a reknown Kiwi artist) who uses vibrant colours and realistic imagery. The characters are life-like and could step off the page! An added bonus is a “finding section” of 32 NZ critters and plants that are hidden in the pages of the story!
