Award-winning author/illustrator Tammy Yee has worked on more than thirty children's books including "The Tsunami Quilt" (written by Anthony Fredericks, Sleeping Bear Press), Honor Awards winner for the 2008 Storytelling World Awards in the Stories for Pre-Adolescent Listeners category; "A is for Aloha" (written by Uilani Goldsberry, Sleeping Bear Press), selected by the Hawaii Center for the Book to represent the state at the 2006 National Book Festival; "Lullaby Moon" (written by Elaine Masters, Island Heritage Publishing), winner of the 2003 Ka Palapala Po'okela Award for Excellence in Children's Books; and the island children's classic, "Baby Honu's Incredible Journey" (Island Heritage Publishing).Review:
"Island-Style Alphabet" illustrates words that begin with a specific letter to help youngsters learn. For example, the letter "C" depicts a Chinese lion dancing through a Chinatown street. What makes Yee's book delightful are the other "C" objects that surround the drawing's focal point: char siu hanging from skewers, a chicken being chased by a claws-out cat that is wearing a carnation lei, and a cricket eluding the chicken. An addendum lists objects in each illustration, but not all of them, so older children -- and even adults -- will enjoy searching the pictures.
