About this title:

Synopsis: The Whale who Wanted to be Small, the first book written and illustrated by the best selling Hawaiian children's book author, Gill McBarnet nearly 30 years ago, tells the story of Kanani the baby whale.  Kanani is much bigger than any of her sea creature friends, and wishes she was small like them.  Only when exposed to the magnificence of her Grandfather does she realize the beauty and value of being a whale.
 
This charming story of self-esteem will delight children and inform them about one of the giants of the ocean - the Humpback Whale.

About the Author: Gill McBarnet is one of Hawaii's top children's book authors. For nearly 30 years, Gill McBarnet has been writing and illustrating children's books with Hawaiian settings, and her words and delightful illustrations have inspired a generation of island youngsters and young visitors to Hawaii.

From a whale who wanted to be small, a brave little turtle, a bullying shark and geckos who like to play hide and seek, Gill McBarnet has explored a host of Hawaiian themes with liveliness and humor. Her stories are entertaining, comforting, amusing and interesting, and many have become best sellers in Hawaii. "THE GOODNIGHT GECKO" and "GECKO HIDE AND SEEK" are amongst the top 5 best selling children's books in Hawaii; and "THE WHALE WHO WANTED TO BE SMALL", "THE WONDERFUL JOURNEY", "THE SHARK WHO LEARNED A LESSON" and "GECKO HIDE AND SEEK" are also best selling children's books in Hawaii. Gill's most recent book, "HAPPY AS A DOLPHIN: A CHILD'S CELEBRATION OF HAWAII", invites young readers to join a lively celebration of Hawaii.

Gill was born and raised in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa, but moved to Hawaii in 1984, where she wrote her first children's book about whales, an animal she fell in love with after coming to Maui. Gill's book, "THE WHALE WHO WANTED TO BE SMALL", was the first of over a dozen exquisitely illustrated children's book to be written by the acclaimed author.
