Marvellous Marvin

Author(s): Nadia Lim

NZ Picture Books

One night on Nadia Lim’s Central Otago farm a little chick hatches out of its egg ...“My, oh my, you’re MARVELLOUS!” Mama whispers happily. “Welcome Marvellous Marvin, to our little family.”

This adorable picture book, inspired by a true story, includes family photos, egg-citing farm and food facts and a collectable Nadia Lim fluffy pancakes recipe.

Ruth's Review:

TV celebrity chef Nadia Lim shares the story of ever-so-cute chick Marvin, who hatched after she had rescued some abandoned eggs on her Arrowtown farm and placed them in a make-shift incubator.

Colston's enchanting illustrations capture the expressions and exuberance of this unusual family pet as he gets up to all sorts of mischief. Photos of the real Marvin with Nadia's family are included in the book, along with facts about chickens and Nadia's eggs-cellent pancake recipe.

A lovely feel-good story that will appeal to ages 3 to 7 years.
