Explaining to children what happened to the moa

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:52 pm on 29 October 2020

Author and illustrator Ned Barraud was inspired to tackle the story of our largest prehistoric bird after moa prints were discovered in a Central Otago riverbed last year.

To make sure his book, What Happened to the Moa, was as authentic as possible he sought expert advice from Professor Trevor Worthy and former Wikipedian-at-large, Dr Mike Dickison.

He tells Jesse about the book and the joy of bringing the moa back to life through his illustrations as well as his other just released book, Where Is It, a wildlife hunt for Kiwi kids.
