Their house is surrounded by giant kauri and rimu trees and many of the photographs featured in this book were taken only metres from their front door. Darryl is a fulltime freelance photographer and has won more than one hundred international awards for his stunning photography. Gillian is a scientist at Auckland University. This is their sixth book and the fourth written specifically for children. Previous childrens' titles include Kiwi Adventures - Snorkelling and Kiwi Adventures - Trout Fishing and What Am I? Water.
