”;Pono, the Dog that Dreams”;

; By Jocelyn Fujii; illustrated by Donna Burns

Hula Moon Press, $14.95

With lots of charm and imagination, veteran writer Jocelyn Fujii and local artist Donna Burns make their way into the mind of Pono, a real-life poi dog rescued from a Maui shelter.

Their tale follows Pono from puppy found in a rice bag on the side of the road to a canine with super-dog ambitions, guided in his dreams by a water goddess.
