WELCOME!! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY...
Tu Meke Tūī is a children's book written by Malcolm Clarke, illustrated by Flox (Aka Hayley King) and designed and published by Mary Egan Publishing.
Our book will be in stores April 2nd, but we're offering pre-orders (with delivery in NZ before April 2nd) through Kickstarter. These pre-orders are to help us cover print costs.
Don't miss out on your chance to get a limited edition, 1st print copy of Tu Meke Tūī. There are also a limited amount of signed copies available.
The idea for Tū Meke Tūī was born out of Malcolm’s appreciation for New Zealand native wildlife and his desire to expose young readers to the wonders of the natural.
Tere the Tūī and Taitū the Takahē are two very different sorts of birds; one loves to flit and twirl around in the sky, while the other prefers to rustle about in the undergrowth.
Tu Meke Tūī is a story of friendship, courage and discovering that sometimes it's our differences that make us truly special.
We are all thrilled to see this project so close to being realised. In only a few weeks we will see the first edition in our hands and we couldn't be more excited to make it available for you all.

Risks and challenges
A beautiful book doesn’t make itself. Getting it right is a collaboration between the author and many others – the editor, illustrator, designer, proofreader, printer, publicist and distributor.
Mary Egan Publishing have taken great care of the whole process and we have all contributed a lot of energy and love to make this book something very special. A gift to be treasured.
The book is high quality, hard cover with strong durable pages and a matt laminate finish.
We are at print stage now and this site will help us with the funding required to deliver a beautiful, high quality book.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
