Ria the Reckless Wrybill
Publisher: Penguin Group (NZ)
According to Ria's parents, the most important a young wrybill must learn is how to stay still and silent whenever a predator is near. But Ria is a reckless wrybill, and she doesn't want to stay hidden in the river stones. The wrybill or ngatuparore is an endangered native bird that breeds on riverbeds in Canterbury and Otago. It is the only bird in the world with a bill that is bent sideways. Children will love this lively story about a feisty native bird. Jenny Cooper's stunning illustrations evoke the humour of Buxton's writing and portray these rare birds in their riverbed habitat.
