  • Take a beautifully illustrated journey -- with an adorable kiwi bird as your guide -- through the vast and colorful world of birds, with its tapestry of textures, sounds, and sights.
  • Even the kiwi chick -- who struggles to see at first how he fits in -- finds that he too belongs to this fascinating family of feathered friends.
  • 32-page full-color picture book with dust jacket.
  • Sturdy hardcover binding.
  • Picture book measures 8-3/4'' wide x 11-1/4'' high.
