Little man was pretty keen to tear off the paper and see what was in the latest @kiwi_Book_Club
pack because he knows the books are going to be pitched right at him. Chip is a delightful story and just right for summer holidays, about a seagull who likes to pinch people’s hot chips. I love that the author snuck in that chips aren’t seagull’s native diet and actually give them tummy aches and I LOVE the ending, which you’ll just have to read for yourself. The illustrations are so relatable and I expect next time we’re eating fish and chips at the beach my family will be squarking “chip chip!” Chip is written and illustrated by Perth’s #KylieHowarth @kylie_howarth

Gumboot Stomp is a cheerful and sometimes cheeky rhyme combining the New Zealand Pukeko bird with quintessential Kiwi Red Band gumboots. The illustrations are bright and fun, highlighting the bird’s blue plumage and it’s red-topped boots. It’s written by #SamanthaLaugese @westmerefarm
, illustrated by #KatMerewether @illustratedkat.
A colouring book was also included, counting from 1-20 in both English and Maori, which is pretty cool. It’s based on a counting picture book illustrated by #DonovanBixley @donovan_bixley
