Pono Finds His Flippers

Authored by Pattie McCann Tracy
Illustrated by Chelsea Sachiko McKeown

In a tropical paradise far, far away, a delightful little boy named Pono enjoys every sun-filled day with his best friend, Lani, a Hawaiian monk seal. While they share a true friendship of aloha - one of love, fun and adventure - they can only explore together on land. Not having flippers of his own, Pono longs to join Lani each time she heads out to sea. Learning of her son's unhappiness, Pono's mother helps him find his own flippers by teaching him to swim in the island's blue waters. With his best friend Lani cheering by his side, triumphantly Pono learns to swim, and their lives are forever changed. Now the world is their oyster, and their adventures as wide as the ocean is deep.
