Tere the Tūī and Taitū the Takahē are two very different sorts of birds: one loves to flit and twirl about in the sky, while the other prefers to rustle around in the undergrowth. Tu Meke Tūī! is a story of friendship, courage and discovering that sometimes it’s our differences which make us truly special.

Award-winning children’s book Tu Meke Tūī! takes the stage and will lift your heart and soul. Set against a lusciously illustrated backdrop of Aotearoa’s magical native wildlife, this beautiful story celebrating friendship, courage and diversity will delight the whole whānau.

“The songs and dancing were a hit! My kids were bouncing about on their seats excited and felt involved in the show as it played out in front of them. On a serious note some of the more important themes of conservation where our native wildlife is in danger from the stoat and the use of Māori language (te reo), which is undergoing a much-needed revival in Aotearoa are important undertones in this incredible show.” – Michelle Beard,

Please note – Tu Meke Tūī! contains English and Te Reo Māori
