About this book

Prepare for laughter and chaos when the endangered birds that are trapped inside Sammy's book are finally set free.

As Sammy's favourite New Zealand birds are squashed into the pages of his book, their quirky personalities and colourful plumages are hidden from the world. They perch in awkward positions on the pages, far from their beautiful natural habitats and unable to live in the wild. That is, until Sammy decides to share them with his class during Show and Tell. Next thing you know, he has unleashed unbridled birdy chaos!

Once the craziness subsides, could the birds and the children end up being best feathered friends?

Beautifully illustrated by Carl van Wijk, Squishy Squashy Birds is the perfect book for those who love all things precious, wild and wonderfully New Zealand.

Alicia Munday spent her younger years dreaming up stories. This passion for storytelling led her to study advertising, with a focus on copywriting. For over 10 years she worked in the advertising industry as a TV producer, then account service, on some of the world’s biggest clients. Alicia takes inspiration from her two boys and their love of nature and animals.

Carl van Wijk spent his boyhood deep in the forests of New Zealand, quietly observing and sketching our native birds. He went on to study graphic design at AUT and graduated with honours. Carl’s career in advertising began in Auckland, took him to Australia, and now he is Creative Director for an advertising agency in Tokyo. In his spare time, Carl paints with fond memories of his home country, New Zealand.
