really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, childrens, hawaiiana, historical-fiction, ocean-seashore
Recommended for: parents reading with their children

A smooth-flowing narrative that tells an interesting story, watercolor pictures that are expressive and work well with the tale and author's notes that tell more about the true historical aspects of the Polynesian explorers that came to settle the Hawaiian islands...they all combine to make a fascintating book that is fictional, but likely to be true in many aspects. We really enjoyed this book.
