The Ugly Kiwi
Whoever heard of a bird that can't fly? And what about one that grunts like a pig? Kiwi must surely be the dullest, dumpiest bird there is. "Real" birds with colourful feathers and beautiful songs look down on poor little Kiwi from their lofty tree-top perches.
But when danger comes silently slinking, they won't be laughing about Kiwi behind their wings any more. Kiwi shows them just what he's really made of.
