Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Little Hoiho waddles down to the estuary and tries to walk elegantly like Kotuku, soar through the sky like Albatross and sing like Tui, but she finds herself lacking. As she turns to waddle back to her nest, she falls into the water ... and finds that's where she can elegantly fly.

Picture story book for children in Māori.
