  • Gentle Giant Wetapunga
    Gentle Giant Wetapunga
    Wetapunga is one of Earth's earliest insect survivors, from Gondwanaland to now. However, the arrival of humans to Aotearoa has endangered the 11 known giant species, due to predator mammals such as dogs, rats, possums etc and the clearing of their forest habitat.

    This stunning picture book tells us how the ancient insect lives and defends itself, and can be read on two levels. Florian's lyrical verse describes w?t?punga in action, while paragraphs of text on the opposite page provide all the facts. Details of a breeding programme to preserve the species and a timeline are included. Similar in style to Florian's eye-catching Kiwi: the Real Story, Gentle Giant will appeal to children from age 5 to 12.

  • If Elephants Disappeared
    If Elephants Disappeared
    What would happen if elephants disappeared? Trace the repercussions of a world without elephants in writer and illustrator Lily Williams' third picture book about loss and conservation.

    The Congolese forest is home to many types of animals.
    Some are strong.
    Some are slippery.
    Some are loud.
    And some, like the elephant, are BIG.

    The elephant has become synonymous with the image of African wildlife. They can grow over 10 feet tall and eat up to 300 pounds a day. While these giants are beloved figures in movies and zoos, they also play a large role in keeping the forest ecosystem healthy.

    Unfortunately, poachers are hunting elephants rapidly to extinction for their ivory tusks, and that could be catastrophic to the world as we know it.
