After some brief speeches made by the illustrator Heather Hunt, and author Annemarie Florian, we were told some amusing tales of Heather and Todd's adventures tracking various Kiwi through bush blocks and gully's.

We were then treated to a wonderful and entertaining puppet show which kept the children completely and thoroughly transfixed.

The children then had a morning tea of mud slide drinks (chocolate milk), freshly dug worms (jelly) and insect biscuits :)

Huhu grub!

This really was a lovely morning out with my girls, and we made sure to get our copy of this gorgeous book signed by Heather and Annemarie, and Todd from Backyard Kiwi too.
