By Burl Burlingame


Momi -- A Hawaiian Mermaid in the Land of Delight by Elaine Masters, illustrated by Yuko Green(Island Heritage, $8.99)

All the creatures in the sea, including the cherubic Momi, have a special talent, which means they're all equally special, right? A celebrate-our-differences meditation done up in colorful fashion.


The Castle That Kai Built -- A Rhyming Rebus by Tammy Yee (Island Heritage, $8.99)

Things get out of control when Kai builds a large sand castle on the beach and it gets in everyone's way. Yee's wordplay and illustrations here are among her best. A charming project that's fun to read out loud.


Aloha Bear The Footprint Detective by Yuko Green(Island Heritage, $8.99)

The faintly over-commercialized Aloha Bear pokes around the beach and discovers the answers to not-so-mysterious mysteries hidden behind flaps on the pages. Kids will have fun flipping flaps -- that is, until they know the answers.
