Summary
The tiny Stephens Island wrens, being flightless birds, had no natural defences against cats that had been introduced to the Island by people working there. Within two years, the species had been wiped out. The strikingly beautiful illustrations reinforce the tragedy of the obliteration of this tiny Eden. Age 6+
