Tere the Tui and Taitu the Takahe 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 Tui! is a story of friendship, courage and discovering that sometimes it's our differences which make us truly special.
Creativity is only limited by the power of imagination and since he was young Malcolm has worked to push his imagination to its full potential. As an editor for television Malcolm has worked internationally with some of the best in the business while maintaining a steady passion for a wide variety of creative pursuits such as writing, acting, theatre and film projects. The idea for Tu Meke Tui! was born out of Malcolm's appreciation for New Zealand's native wildlife and his desire to expose young readers to the wonders of the natural world.
