This children's book unravels the fascinating story of what happened to the moa, the legendary flightless bird of Aotearoa New Zealand. In this gloriously illustrated book, Ned Barraud describes the nine different species of moa, ranging from a small bush moa just over a metre hi...gh, to the giant moa at 3.6 metres high. It also covers where and how moa lived, and, tragically how they were wiped out within 200 years of Maori arriving in New Zealand. The book concludes with one of the last probable sightings of a moa, by a girl from a settler family in Fiordland in 1880. This book is for any child curious to learn more about our most remarkable bird.
