Little Kiwi's sister has arrived and, boy, have things changed! She likes playing games but these usually involve "girl things" - not the real scary stuff that Little Kiwi likes. "I like scary things too," Little Sister explains but how can that possibly be? Then Stoat arrives on the scene, and the birds of the forest realise that something scary is exactly what they need. Now it's Little Sister's turn to come to the rescue.
