Meg A. Feather and The Forest Games






Hi Kaye and Mike                         

We received your book, it's really neat and we are very proud of it, I have been in contact with the Manager of Whitcoulls to order some for us as they will sell at the Centre. We have been very busy since the end of November, its just started to slow down, at long last, as you can see, Snoopy is still going very strong, he has a friend called Sparky who also has lost his foot to a Gin trap, Sparky lives at the Centre while Snoopy lives at our home.

Sparky plus a 10 day old Kiwi chick are on our live webcams, have a look, we have also been showing a very young Wandering Albatross, great to hear from you and I hope all is going well over there for you both, keep in touch, all our best wishes.

Robert and Robyn Webb

Mike and Kaye!

I have just finished reading Meg A Feather and the Forest Games

It is a sensational publication and addition to children's literature

It is interesting and intriguing. It is creative and clever. It is friendly and fun. It educates and illuminates. This will become essential reading for a generation of Kiwi kids.

Many thousands will drift off to sleep with images and ideas and echoes of the The Forest Games floating around in the video of their imagination

You two are just so creative and multi talented.

I am proud to call you friends

All the best and may the first hundred multiply into many, many thousands of sales. May it become an essential member of every library and school and bedroom book shelf in NZ!

I can see thousands of active little eyes constantly scanning the pages of your book, taking in the tremendous variety of images and along with their fascinated and discriminating gaze will come the wry smiles of the mums and dads who enjoy not only the illustrations, but also the word plays and clever lines.

Meg A. Feather is one feisty, spunky kiwi chick.

She's just cycled around New Zealand on a bike made out of number 8 wire. Now she's saving the annual Forest Games from the dastardly deeds of stoats, weasels, rats, possums, feral cats and ferrets. And what an adventure it turns out to be!

From the High Jump to the ZigZag race, from the Tumbledown to the Kiwi Karate and more, it's bound to be a big night in more ways than one!


“A kiwi classic – once in our beaks, we wouldn't put it down” (The Knightly Kiwi)

“This is the best book my Dad's ever read to me. He's the 100-beak backstroke champion too” (Kevin Kiwi's son)

“Move over Winnie-the-Pooh, Meg's coming through… on her bike” (Kiwi chick)

“This book's got my hoot!” (Millicent Morepork, grandmother of 27 grandchicks)
