Hina and the Sea of Stars

$14.95

Author: Michael Nordenstrom | Hardcover

The second in a series of children’s picture books about Hawaiian goddesses, Hina and the Sea of Stars combines elements of several legends about Hina, a goddess considered to be a primary ancestor of the Hawaiian people. Hina is often associated with the moon and its cycles, and therefore with fishing, planting, and fertility.

REVIEWS:

“Children’s books often don't have many words. This one uses fewer than 500 well chosen words. In those few words it retells with simple grace a collection of tales about Hina the mother of the Hawaiian people... The story is charming but the illustrations are glorious. Each two-page spread is a collage.

Nordenstrom’s previous book Pele and the Rivers of Fire won a Hawaii Publishers Association Pa'i award for its illustrations and made him a finalist for the Utah Childrenʻs Book Award. Hina and the Sea of Stars is at least as good.”
