A New Zealand book every kid should read before the age of 12 - Project Huia by Des Hunt




The New Zealand Book Council came up with a list of books by New Zealanders that they reckon every kid should have read by the age of 12.  I decided to check out the ones I haven't read and post about the ones I agreed were good (in no particular order).

Project Huia is a difficult book to describe.  It has quite a lot of excitement but isn't a thriller.  It deals with 2 times periods 1947 and the current time.  It is about the hunt for the last huia (a NZ native bird that is apparently extinct)

It does have great NZ flavour.  Give it a go.
