Baba Didi and the Godwits Fly
A story of fantastical flight and courage

The godwits are an iconic bird species that migrate each year from New Zealand/Aotearoa through East Asia and the Pacific to the Alaskan Arctic regions.

In this endearing children's tale, Isabella and her grandmother Baba Didi are on a beach in Aotearoa watching the godwits feeding, ready to depart. Gradually the story of the godwit's epic migration charmingly unfolds, touching on waves of human migration on the way - of the Maori to Aotearoa as well as the Baba Didi's own migration from Croatia. It is the story of a fantastical flight, and of the courage and resilience it takes for birds - and people - to keep going to reach a safe destination.

Written by Nicola Muir and illustrated by Annie Hayward, with a foreword by Helen Clark, former NZ prime minister and now head of the UN Development Programme. Royalties from sales go to UNICEF.
