Philip Temple’s best-selling New Zealand classic is, on the one hand, a vivid celebration of the natural world in the tradition of Tarka the Otter or Watership Down. On the other, it is a political fable in the manner of George Orwell’s Animal Farm that is as relevant today as when it was first published 30 years ago. The southern mountain world is seen and experienced entirely through the eyes of kea and none of their described actions are outside the bird’s ability and known behaviour. The writing contains no human metaphor.

Book I purchased was listed as "second hand and in good condition". Book is in amazing condition and was hard to tell that it was used. The story is a must read for anyone who has any knowledge of the Kea birds of the South Island of New Zealand. A great story that I have been unable to put down.

I really enjoyed this book which shows us the world of the New Zealand alpine parrot, the kea, and the larger, flightless parrot the kakapo. Talking to each other, the birds are our characters.

When their home is invaded by people the birds face new challenges and have to adapt for the first time in many generations.

The environment is well described and since the birds, particularly the kakapo, are endangered species, it is good to raise awareness of their plight.
