Episode 423: The Ugly Hatchling

In this episode Jonathan and Evan are both year 6 from room 17 and have done an excellent review on "The Ugly Hatchling" by Yvonne Morrison.

When a greedy stoat tries to steal one of New Zealand's iconic birds from its nest, on its travel back to its home, he stumbles and the egg lands in a Pukeko nest amongst the other Pukeko eggs. 
When a Kiwi hatches he realises that he is very different looking to the rest and doesn't understand why?

He would rather be awake and playing at night whilst the other chicks are fast asleep

On one night the kiwi goes off into the night only to find himself at a house, and is startled to see himself on nearly every piece of furniture inside.
What will happen to this little wee Kiwi...



Take a listen to Jonathan and Evan's
awesome review on New Zealand's very own version of the "Ugly Duckling"
