Manukura the white kiwi book


Why is Manukura the kiwi white? Why does she live at Pūkaha?

Discover her tale as she hatches at Pūkaha and stuns everyone with her white feathers, in this true story by world-renowned New Zealand writer Joy Cowley!

When a rare white kiwi was born in captivity at Pukaha Mount Bruce, Māori recognised this as something very special – a treasure and a sign of new beginnings.

In this beautiful picture book, Joy tells the story of Manukura and offers an uplifting message to all young children.

With strikingly naturalistic illustrations by Bruce Potter, this is a treasure of a book that will be loved by generations to come.
