Flit the Fantail and the Mystery Eggs product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsIt is a misty morning in the forest and Flit the fantail chick is practising his landings. He slips on something round - he has found eight rubbery white eggs. But whose could they be?

Join Flit and his friends, Kiki the kaka, rascally robins Bit and Bob, Keri the kiwi, and wise old Ruru as they try to figure out who the mystery eggs belong to.

Flit is back, if you like me loved the first installment of Flit when he was clumsily learning to fly you will equally adore Flit in this new book with the mystery eggs. He is back as cute as ever and in continuation from the first book his flying seems just as clumsy as ever! If you like me have seen the beautiful native Fantails around your garden at home you will recognise that while graceful the way they cheekily hop, flit, and tumble around the garden in a cheekily playful manner is totally recognisable in the character of Flit in these adorable picture books.

When Flit accidentally stumbles upon some mysterious eggs he is eager to find out who the eggs belong to and asks for the help of some other native bird characters including a Kaka, a Kiwi, and the wise Ruru. We are also introduced to some of NZ's stunning native plants through Kat's beautiful illustrations of the bush scenery. The birds all have the cute factor that appeals to young children with the big cartoon style eyes and playful expressions making them very easy to love. Like the first book with Flit you can find hidden clues in the pictures that add to the story, so we spent a long time just looking at the pictures together discussing the things we could see and what was happening in the pictures without reading the words.

Mystery books are great with my young children as they draw their interest and have them eagerly awaiting the page turns to find out what happens next. This book has a surprise ending as we find out who the eggs really belong to which was very exciting for my son as he had been taking guesses as to whose eggs he thought they might be. It was great how we also learn cool facts about the different types of eggs, my children found it hillarious how big Kiwi eggs are and were somewhat surprised by this indeed. A great discussion starter for learning about birds and other animals that lay eggs.

The playful rhythm and repitition of the story makes this a delightful book to read aloud with young children for a shared storytime and a great book for Kiwi Kids to learn about some wonderful New Zealand native creatures we will certainly be reading this book many many more times.
