Tu Meke Tui! There's More to Being a Bird Than Flying by Malcolm Clarke, Flox

Tu Meke Tūī is a children's book written by Malcolm Clarke, illustrated by Flox (Aka Hayley King).

Illustrated by Flox, a graffiti artist with a fine arts degree. Flox first made her mark in inner-city Auckland, New Zealand, her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers magically transforming grey walls into vibrant depictions of nature. Now seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong and New York to Taiwan, the artist is certainly spreading her wings.

THE STORY:

The idea for Tū Meke Tūī was born out of Malcolm’s appreciation for New Zealand native wildlife and his desire to expose young readers to the wonders of the natural.

Tere the Tūī and Taitū the Takahē are two very different sorts of birds; one loves to flit and twirl around in the sky, while the other prefers to rustle about in the undergrowth.

Tu Meke Tūī is a story of friendship, courage and discovering that sometimes it's our differences that make us truly special.
