'''Uh-oh'', this Kiwi retelling of the classic children's tale is likely to prove as popular as the original! In this version, three children venture out in search of the eponymous moa ''swishing and rustling'' across a wide paddock, scalding their feet on ''scorching sizzling sand'', slurping their way through a ''sucky mucky swamp'' and so on. Vivid illustrations of a variety of New Zealand landscapes, flora and fauna are sure to keep another generation enthralled.' Helen Speirs, Otago Daily Times
