Publisher's Summary

On remote Codfish Island off the southern coast of New Zealand live the last 91 kakapo parrots on earth. These trusting, flightless, and beautiful birds - the largest and most unusual parrots on earth - have suffered devastating population loss. Now, on an island refuge with the last of the species, New Zealand’s National Kakapo Recovery Team is working to restore the kakapo population. With the help of 14 humans who share a single hut and a passion for saving these odd ground-dwelling birds, the kakapo are making a comeback in New Zealand. Follow intrepid animal lovers Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop on a 10-day excursion to witness the exciting events in the life of the kakapo.

Written for a 5 Year Old

Very disappointed, nothing in the description suggested this was a child's book. My lifelong passion for avian conservation notwithstanding, what a waste of money and time this book was for me.
