New releases from Hawaii authors
"Tutu Knows Best"
By Lynne Wikoff
Wikoff wrote her first children's book in 2000 and has teamed up with illustrator Laurel Meister to publish this heartwarming tale of a large Hawaiian family and their troubles living together in a tiny home. In this story, Tutu teaches them all a valuable lesson about appreciating their hale, no matter how small it is. The book is a large-format hardcover in full color.
"Okazu at the Zoo"
By Laurie Ide
Ide and illustrator Daniel Kanekuni have created a large-format color hardcover book for children that teaches kids about different animals while telling the story of Karley and Karmen. The two children bring their okazu to the zoo with them, and while sharing their food with the animals and their friends, readers also learn about unique foods of Hawaii.
