Sumorella is the Hawaiian version of Cinderella about "Mango Boy" and his dream to be a sumo wrestler despite his skinny stature and belittling older brothers. The text uses authentic Hawaiian words which helps add to the genuineness of the story and also includes a glossary of these words in the back. This book can be used as a read aloud in the classroom that inspires discussion about other cultures and their differences in language.
This book has everything; mangos, sumotori, the manapua man, sillyness.

Hazel likes this book a lot and even though it is kind of wordy for a bedtime story it isn't too bad to read over and over again.
