Fantail, Fantail

Fantail fantail.

by Margaret Mahy

drawings by Bruce Phillips

This very “New Zealand” text is written as a conversation between a fantail and an unidentified person, and it informs the reader about the food that Fantail prefers. The companion text Old Tuatara ends with the same climax – the demise of an unwitting fly.
