Join us to celebrate the ultimate children’s book about New Zealand’s wild creatures – and meet author Janet Hunt.

“How to Mend a Kea and other fabulous fix-it tales from Wildbase Hospital” is written by expert natural history writer and past Waiheke resident Janet Hunt.

'How to Mend a Kea' is the perfect book for everyone who cares about our wild creatures and wants to know more about how they are helped when they are ill or injured; the little kaka that lost its way; the kereru with the broken wing; the tuatara that went floppy; the whio that couldn’t fly, the kea with the broken foot.

All these stories and more from Wildbase, the remarkable New Zealand native animal veterinary hospital, told by Janet Hunt. Children, parents and teachers will be entranced and inspired by the stories of how skilled vets can cure our endangered species.

Meet author Janet Hunt, hear more about the book and ask your pressing questions. Have your book signed by Janet (cash sales only – or books are available from Paper Plus, Oneroa) for the ultimate personalised Christmas gift. Refreshments provided.

Plus: Meet our local native bird rescue and rehabilitation team from Native Bird Rescue, Waiheke.
