Meg A Feather and The Forest Games
by Mike Banks and Kaye Fox
Meg A. Feather is one feisty, spunky kiwi chick. She’s just cycled around New Zealand on a bike made out of number 8 wire, and now she’s saving the annual Forest Games from the dastardly deeds of stoats, weasels, rats, possums, cats and ferrets. And what an adventure it is, full of commotion, some kerfuffle and it’s really higgledy-piggledy.
The Great Committee meeting is convened to organise the Games. It soon becomes a Bored Meeting.
The Pigeon Sisters have flown in for a slice of the action, for a special ‘One Night Only’ performance.
All the Press and TV crews are at the games and some of the games get quite rough. As with all good stories, there are goodies and baddies, and comeuppances for the dastardly deeds of the biggest villain.
“A kiwi classic – once in our beaks, we wouldn’t put it down” (The Knightly Kiwi)
“This is the best book my Dad’s ever read to me. He’s the 100-beak backstroke champion too” (Kevin Kiwi’s son)
“Move over Winnie-the-Pooh, Meg’s coming through… on her bike” (Kiwi chick)
“This book’s got my hoot!” (Millicent Morepork, grandmother of 27 grandchicks)
A desire to help the plight of the Kiwi in New Zealand resulted in a great little children’s book full of beautiful original watercolour paintings for you to enjoy.
This book is dedicated to Snoopy, a very special one-legged kiwi and his mate Sparky (photo, also with one leg) at The Native Bird Recovery Centre, Whangarei, and the tireless efforts of his guardian, Robert and Robyn Webb.
