Auckland Libraries: Matt Elliott on the kiwi

Author talk: Matt Elliott on The Kiwi

Saturday 16 November 2pm to 3pm Free

Author Matt Elliott will be at Glenfield Library to discuss his latest book, The Kiwi: endangered New Zealand icon.

Cover of book depicting a kiwi and a road sign.
"It can't fly...has nostrils at the end of its long beak...cat-like whiskers...the body temperature of a mammal...sharp claws and strong legs to defend itself...lays an egg six times larger than that of a chicken...lives in a burrow...can swim...and is nocturnal. Surely this makes the kiwi one of the world's most unusual creatures? Most of us have never seen a kiwi in the wild. Yet this endangered bird is a much-loved national icon, propudly displayed emblem, and the nickname by which New Zealanders are known around the world."
