About Kuwi the Kiwi - Header Image

Kuwi the Kiwi is the creation of New Zealand author Kat Merewether. Since the first Kuwi book, Kuwi’s First Egg, was published in 2014, Kuwi has become a firm favourite of young readers worldwide.

The series continued with Kuwi’s Huhu Hunt and both of these books have now also been translated into Te Reo Māori – Te Hua Tuatahi a Kuwi and Te Toro Huhu a Kuwi respectively. Kuwi’s adventures continued with Kuwi’s Very Shiny Bum and a brand new story will be released later this year.

Kuwi’s beautiful world has also been transformed into Kuwi’s Creative Colouring Book, with illustrations for children and adults to colour in side-by-side, and Kuwi’s Kitchen – a recipe book packed full of fun, healthy and nutritious recipes to make with your kids.

Kiwicorn joined the Kuwi and Friends family in 2017 – a tale about how fabulous and unique we all are.

Kat donates 20c from the sale of every Kuwi and Friends product to help protect Kuwi’s real-life cousins and has so far donated over $16,000. Kiwis for kiwi is immensely proud to have Kat as an ambassador.
