Tales of the Mermaids of Waiahuakua by Kohana Au

Do you like fairytales, mythology, folk tales and legends?  Then you'll love this book...


Friesen Press has published this book and the author sent me a copy for review (thank you).  You can get it in paperback or ebook form.  The print form is just lovely!  The illustrations are well worth the price of the softcover book.  They are luscious and delectable to the eye.


This book is filled with short stories and poems about the legends.  My husband and I have been to Hawaii three times and this book sings of the islands and the wonder of the scenery and flowers.  The islands are made of legends and it was fun to read about them again.


If you haven't had a chance to make a visit to Hawaii or any of the Polynesian islands, this is the best way to visit the magical land and hear about the legends.  It's a special part of the world, and Mr. Au does an excellent job of expressing that.


I highly recommend this book.  Check with your local bookstore and admire a copy, then buy it for your memories or imagination.  It would make a great gift, too.

Happy reading!
