Congratulations to SpecFicNZ member Lee Murray, whose kids’ fantasy/adventure book recently came out. Battle of the Birds is set a millenia ago during a battle between New Zealand’s flightless and flying birds.
Stuck in Wisconsin, 11-year-old Annie is homesick. But when a giant eagle flies her home to New Zealand it’s a thousand years too early and a battle is brewing between the birds. Can Annie and her friends help the flightless overcome ambitious raptor Te Hōkioi? Will gentle Moa survive to live on in history? And will Annie make it back to Wisconsin?
Battle of the Birds would make a great Christmas gift for young and old alike and can be purchased on the Taramea website HERE.
