The Ugly Hatchling (Kiwi Corkers)

Author(s): Yvonne Morrison

Picture books - NZ

A greedy stoat thinks his luck's in when he finds himself a nice big kiwi egg ...but in his haste to get away he stumbles and the egg rolls into a pukeko's nest. In this humourous Kiwi version of The Ugly Duckling, the young kiwi that hatches doesn't understand why he looks different, and why, when he want to gallivant around at night, all the pukekos want to sleep! Then, on one of his night-time jaunts, he wanders into a farmhouse - and is amazed to find his image all over the place!
