ABOUT:

A young girl learning to surf dreams that she is part of the great span of surfing history, which includes ancient kings and queens of Hawaii, as well as the more modern surfing greats like Duke Kahanamoku and Rell Sunn.  In a palette that reflects the rich colors of Hawaii's skies and sea, Carla Golembe paints and tells a story whose rhythm and rhyme capture the feel of riding a board on Waikiki's fabled waves.  The accompanying read-along CD further adds the sounds of Hawaii.

AUTHOR:
