Product Description & Reviews

In the district of Ka'u, spread across the Kama'oa Plain, live the Children of the Gourd. This magical tale delves into the past to reveal how the people of this region came to be named.During the old days of Hawai'i, a young man and woman fell in love. Though both were descended from chiefs, their relationship was looked down upon. And so the young couple ran away together, accompanied by many who cared for them. They crossed the Kama'oa Plain, along the flank of Mauna Loa, where they settled near the shore and thrived. Follow in the footsteps of the chief as he makes his way from Kama'oa to Kapu'a, guided by a tiny green vine. The surprise he finds at the end of his journey solidifies the future of his people.Caren Ke'ala Loebel-Fried beautifully depicts the love story between the two ali'i and the miracle that comes to pass after a tragic death. Written in English with a Hawaiian translation. As a writer, Loebel-Fried tends to be overshadowed by her extraordinary block-print illustrations. That's not really fair, as Loebel-Fried's storytelling abilities are first rate, and she has to uncanny ability to suggest much in just a few words. She is also helped along by Kaliko Beamer-Trapp's Hawaiian translations. Loebel-Fried has won the American Folklore Society's Aesop prize for Children's Folklore and a Ka Palapala Po'okela from the Hawai'i Book Publishers Association. "Gourd" might put more trophies on her mantle. The district of Kau, on the Big Island's Kamaoa Plain, is reputed to house the "Children of the Gourd," so named after a legend of two lovelorn alii and a tragedy that passes between them. The story is told through the gourd itself, a symbol of the Hawaiian people's connection to the land. The story has resonance in Christian mythology as well. It's gorgeously illustrated and handsomely designed. Not just for kids.
