From #1 Bestselling Author and Illustrator of the Kuwi the Kiwi(TM) series, Kat Merewether. Following on from the hugely popular 'Kuwi's First Egg' and 'Kuwi's Huhu Hunt' books.
With the soft jingle of bells, a mysterious gift falls from the sky. It is a shimmering red ball. Kuwi knows exactly what it is. A very shiny bum. She decides to make gifts, so her friends can feel as fortunate as she does.
A hula hoop for Herb the hippy hoiho. Tasteful trimmings for Tash the tuft-less tui. A moustache for Morris the meek morepork...but wait, no 'thank yous'?
A humorous and light hearted story to guide children from a young age to look for small ways to be generous and caring of others, in a time of year that can often be all about the 'presents'. A book to instill an attitude of generosity and giving, appreciation and thankfulness.
