New releases from Hawaii authors, reviewed.

By Burl Burlingame


The Magic of Believing, illustrated by Kevin Buzard (Island Heritage, $8.99)

A strive-and-succeed parable, well illustrated by Buzard, that has its roots in a series of stories written for an Easter Seals publication.

Island Opposites, by Tammy Yee (Island Heritage, $3.99)

The irrepressible Yee, whose drawings are cuter than cute, tackles the concepts of tall and short, up and down, and other things kids eventually learn. Printed on indestructible cardboard.

Peekaboo Shapes, by Tammy Yee (Island Heritage, $8.99)

Yee's island flavor is concentrated this time on the concept of shapes, with the added fun of the "lift-the-flap" manipulations.

Ponopono, by Carolyn Han, illustrated by Carole Hinds McCarty (Island Heritage, $8.99)

Ponopono is a little Hawaiian boy who fails to understand the concept of safe transport, but everything comes out OK in the end. Read with the right voice, this story will have little kids squealing.
