About the Author:

Monika Mira is a graduate of the University of Hawaii at Hilo and long time Hawaii resident. She first learn to identify Hawaiian fishes nearly 20 years ago as a volunteer for the UH Sea Grant information desk at Hanauma Bay. At that time, she found that it was easier to learn to identify the fishes if she painted or illustrated them. These initial illustrations became the inspiration for The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book. Since then, Monika has worked on numerous projects to help conserve Hawaii's natural resources, from teaching marine science, to conducting biological stream surveys for the Deparment of Health, to co-authoring a watershed restoration plan for the Nawiliwili Watershed and most recently, working as the conservation specialist for the Soil & Water Conservation Districts. Monika's first love however, has always been art. She has been painting and drawing since she can remember. Her paintings and illustrations have appeared in newsletters, on T-shirts and on greeting cards both here in Hawaii and on the mainland. The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book offered her the perfect opportunity to combine her talents. Monika's concern for the environment has lead Lucid Publishing to seek out more environmentally friendly printing options. As a result, The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book is now being printed on recycled paper.

Review:

Please note this is designated a coloring book by the author; however, content and presentation are everything and according to Mira's stated purpose, this is an educational tool. In its 112 pages there is a table of contents, a glossary, a bibliography and an index making up 28 of the pages. The information is orderly and, up to the description of the fish, logical. The illustrations are superb. In fact the illustrations are worthy of much more praise then can be given here. The Complete Hawaiian Reef Fish Coloring Book is a massive endeavor. Mira spent countless hours diving in and around the islands to get the information in this book. She is also a great illustrator. Reading the book and following the illustrations I can see distinctions between each fish shown. The extra illustrations of small sea life, shells and environments scattered throughout the book make it enjoyable. It is easy to color each of them and very rewarding for an adult who doesn't have to stay in the lines but does because it looks better. This could be an effective aid in teaching upper elementary school children about Hawaii. (NOTE: it is classroom tested K-12 according to the back cover). --Chris Phillips-bookpleasures.com --Chris Phillips-bookpleasures.com

Do not think that this title says it all and this book is for children. This book is an educational book as well as reference book for all individuals. Writers writing about the reefs of Hawaii have a fantastic reference guide to facts for their books. Most authors want their writing to be accurate. This book has the Hawaiian names for the fish. As an educational text, this book contains a vast amount of information about the Hawaiian reefs. This reviewer found numerous uses for this book. This reviewer recommends the book as a school text, reference text, and something found in author's libraries. Writers never know where the next idea will come from. This reviewer found it an inspiration for possible storylines. This book receives a four star rating from this reviewer. --rjmbookreviews.com --rjmbookreviews.com
