About the Author:

Author, adventurer, whale detective, pony wrangler, dog musher and all around fun hog, Shelley Gill lives her books! Shelley is the author of several children's books, including ALASKA, HAWAI'I, and SITKA ROSE. She was previously an editor at Alaska Woman magazine, and also worked as a reporter, editor, and publisher for the Frontiersman and Valley Sun newspapers in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. Shelley lives with her family on a ridge above Kachemak Bay in Homer, Alaska.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–This overview is told from the perspective of a Hawaiian boy kayaking with his father around the state. At each island he explains a little about the history, natural science, culture, and economy. He speaks in a bubbly, colloquial voice peppered with local slang. The title page is crowded with a Hawaiian-language guide including alphabet, pronunciation, and vocabulary. The vivid, acrylic art bursts with color on each spread. It fills the pages, and the text appears in white boxes or is printed in white, but it is never difficult to read. Sometimes the images relate to one another to form a realistic picture; however, there is an occasional inconsistency in scale. For example, Father Damien towers above his chapel. However, readers sophisticated enough for the text will be comfortable with the creativity of the illustrations. The end of the book expresses the importance of preserving the state's natural and cultural resources. Gill is best known for her warm and wonderful books about Alaska. She succeeds equally well in a new climate. A lovely and lively introduction.–Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK
