Great Game of Kiwi Tag
by Boring, Curt

ISBN: 9780473292270
PUBLISHER: Curt Boring
FORMAT: Paperback


This is Curt Boring's first book. Growing up in Taupo, Curt had access to the great outdoors and made the most of it. The inspiration for this book came from a trip to Rainbow Springs - seeing the Kiwi's in their enclosure he made a joke to a friend that they all looked as though they were playing tag. When I pulled out this book to read to my granddaughter, Abby, who is 3 years old, I did wonder if she knew what playing tag was all about. She knew all right and insisted later on in the day (nighttime, when all good Kiwis are up!) in playing tag with her Pa. After he played a few games he collapsed, exhausted. This is such a lovely story. Tama, Billy, Milly, Pete, Kit, and Gordon were Kiwis with very big feet. They lived in a zoo on the edge of town. When night fell, this was their time to play. They hustled and tussled like cats in a bag, to see who was "it" for the GREAT GAME OF TAG. They counted to 10 and then the GREAT GAME OF TAG would go on all week. The madness that follows is an enchanting story of the mischief they created wherever they went. Monday Gordon chased Pete through the big Baboon tree, and as he tagged Pete he cried out with glee, "Now it's your turn to be "it," but he'd spoken too soon. He'd made enough noise to wake the Baboon." And so, throughout the night, each day of the week, zoo animals are woken from their dreams. At the end of the week, a meeting was held to decide what to do with these big footed menaces.
