Synopsis

Fables from the Sea by Leslie Ann Hayashi

Children of all ages will delight in this captivating collection of fables featuring creatures found in Hawai'i's waters and tropical oceans worldwide. In its depths and on its shores, you'll meet many of the sea's inhabitants--from manta rays to moray eels, from colorful cowries to fish of every size and color in the rainbow.

Like its companion, Fables from the Garden (UH Press, 1998), this book offers valuable lessons at the end of each story. A tiny shrimp remembers an act of kindness, a seabird learns to respect the property of others, a young hermit crab understands the importance of being polite, a family of limpets perseveres in the face of stormy seas.

Illustrated with splendid watercolors, here are ten stories to share and enjoy with family and friends.

Recommended for ages 4 and up.
