New Zealand birds appear one by one through a circular window, revealing their beak at work obtaining food. On the following page the whole bird is revealed with a paragraph, using the Maori and European name, describing the shape and purpose of the beak. The images are beautifully simple, capturing the essence of each bird. Brief poems begin and end the book.
