About Marvin Makes a Friend

Nadia Lim returns with her second children’s picture book!

“Marvin’s not a chick anymore, it’s MARVELLOUS to see him grow. His feathers are now speckled and sleek, and one day he started to CROW!”

A sequel to celebrity cooks Nadia Lim’s bestselling debut children’s book, Marvellous Marvin. No longer a newly hatched chick, teenage Marvin is trying to find his flock.

He meets many animals on the farm, but will any of them be Marvin’s friend, and who will be Marvin’s family?

Includes family photos, farm and food facts, and an egg-cellent Nadia Lim corn fritter recipe. Children will enjoy following Marvin’s journey, now that he is a handsome, cocky young rooster, who doesn’t always make friends easily. Marvin Makes Friends is beautifully illustrated by one of New Zealand’s top children’s illustrators, Fifi Colston.

Nadia Lim is a celebrity chef, entrepreneur, food writer and television personality. Since winning New Zealand’s MasterChef in 2011 she has published 10 cookbooks in as many years. This is her second children’s book. Nadia lives on a farm with her husband and two sons in Central Otago.

Fifi Colston is a Wellington veteran of The World of Wearable Art Awards and is the author of the children’s ‘how-to’ costume books, Wearable Wonders (winner of the Elsie Locke Award for non-fiction) and its companion volume, Ghoulish Get-ups. She is a junior fiction novelist, children’s book illustrator, magazine poet and a former television presenter of arts and crafts. Fifi has also illustrated a number of Scholastic titles, including the acclaimed The Red Poppy, written by David Hill, and the latest Little Yellow Digger books.
