Kōwhai and the Giants


Kowhai first appeared from the golden glow of a beautiful flower... and her voice was the rain and the sea and the cry of a bird.’  Follow Kowhai as she discovers a tiny seed’s hope to build a great forest.


Debut children’s author Kate Parker is a visual artist and theatre maker who is inspired to support positive environmental change on our planet.  Here she creatively shares her vision of reforesting Aotearoa, one seedling at a time.


Kowhai and the Giants is a bitter/sweet story about the decimation of Aotearoa’s mighty forests following human habitation.  But it is also a story of hope.  While Kowhai may be small and alone, her actions will bring about change and soon, she will be joined by others.
