From this rich body of mythology, author Vivian Thompson has drawn twelve myths. She retells them with the true flavor and simplicity of the storytellers of long ago. Thompson's words are accompanied by the illustrations of Hawaiʻi artist Marilyn Kahalewai, who has captured the delight and drama of the ancient tales.
