Kara the Kakapo

Kara the Kakapo
The most beautiful children's book we've seen this year! We are big fans of the Northland illustrator, Evan Heasman (a.k.a. Soju Shots) here at Gift Guru, so we had high hopes for this book. Our expectations were exceeded as the Wellington based author, Danni Rae's lovely story did Evan's artwork justice.

"Kara the Kakapo"
AUTHOR: Danni Rae

No matter how hard she would try, Kara from Kakapo just couldn't quite seem to master the art of flying. But with optimism, determination and a little creative thinking can Kara still achieve her dream?

Danni wrote Kara the Kākāpō, which is the first in a series of animal adventures, as a
way to share her passion for conservation with the youngest of readers.

“As a zookeeper each day I have the opportunity to talk to children about the wonders of animals and conservation. I wanted to use this book as a way to allow children to connect with these animals at home as well,” says Danni.
