HUTU AND KAWA


CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Description: In an old pohutukawa tree between the forest and the sea live two tiny Pohutukawa Babies, Hutu and Kawa. With the help of Grandpa Kiwi, Hutu and Kawa build a canoe and set off up the river to explore the forest. On their way they make many new friends - and encounter the fearsome Bush Hawk.

During the 1950s children enjoyed the adventures of the Pohutukawa Babies in the New Zealand Herald each week, and Avis Acres' books, with beautiful watercolour illustrations showcasing native flora and wildlife, became bestsellers. The Adventures of Hutu and Kawa is the first tale in the classic series. This 60th-anniversary hardback edition captures all the charm of the original tale and brings these delightful characters to a new generation of children.
