Kaleo Yinrenchengshi

Simplified Character version

Authored by Terry T. Waltz
Edited by Kristine Wogstad

Kaleo's been living on a shoestring in Hawaii with his uncle since his parents failed to return from the Bermuda Triangle. But when the shoestring threatens to snap, Kaleo must use his unique talents and his knowledge of Hawaiian culture to team up with a foreign friend to try for the big prize in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Written in straightforward Chinese suitable for most 2nd year readers, Kaleo contains 375 unique characters and about 250 headwords, and touches on aspects of Chinese, American and traditional Hawaiian culture. Accessible Pinyin support allows for success in independent reading.
