'Twas the night before Christmas . . . but there's no snow and Santa wears a Hawaiian malo around his waist! The latest in Pelican's Night Before Christmas series, this island tale is sure to enchant readers with its tropical twist on the Clement C. Moore classic. Hawaiian Night Before Christmas written and illustrated by Carolyn Macy, is a delightful book for children of all ages. It's Christmas Eve and Mama, Papa, and the keiki (children) have decorated a coconut tree, placed the lauhala (woven baskets) on the porch, and left a snack for Santa, or Kanakaloka, to enjoy. The book details Hawaiian Christmas traditions as the story unfolds. Not a gecko was stirring as Santa Claus comes out of the night, not in a wintry sleigh but an outrigger canoe pulled by eight strong sea turtles. Complete with a glossary of Hawaiian terms, this vividly illustrated celebration of Christmas Hawaiian-style is an enchanting journey to a lush tropical paradise just in time for the Holiday gift-giving and gift-guide season.
