Maui Hooks the Islands
Author: Ahulii, Gabrielle ; Tsong, Jing Jing
Part of a new series called Hawaiian Legends for Little Ones, Maui Hooks the Islands introduces kids ages 2-5 to one of Hawaii's best-known legends about Maui the demigod who fished up the Hawaiian islands using a magic fishing hook. In simple, poetic language, this origin story gives small kids a taste of Hawaii's rich history of storytelling.
Three other titles in the series are: Hina, Pele Finds a Home, Maui Slows the Sun, Hiiaka Battles the Wind, and Naupaka--all legends that will give kids a wider view of Hawaiian culture, history, and its natural world.
