NZ Post Children’s Book Awards Finalists 2011 – Betty Brownlie

My name is Betty Brownlie and I enjoy writing wildlife books for children.   My recent book, The Life Cycle of the Pukeko is a finalist in the non-fiction category of the New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, 2011.

The Life Cycle of the Pukeko is illustrated with beautiful, full colour photographs and is bursting with fascinating information. For example, did you know that the male pukeko builds the nest for his mate, but she will inspect other nests in the area and will choose the best-looking one in which to lay her eggs – even if there are already eggs in it?

You will have fun learning about this interesting bird, and when you see it out in a paddock or poking around in a swamp, you’ll know exactly what it’s up to!
