This is one of a series of books produced by Island Heritage for the Bank of Hawaii's 75th anniversary in the early 1970's. I got most of the series and they became extremely popular with my young children. To this day they remember them as their favorite books. They are now being read to my grandchildren. If fact one of my children quietly slipped them out of my house recently hoping to gain possesion of them before the siblings became aware thinking no one would miss them. Well, another sibling showed up and wanted to read one of them to her young daughter and they were gone missing. It raised a bit of a stir. They have been returned but I think now I am going to buy them for each of the children for their children. The art work is wonderful and the stories are based on originals tales from Hawaii, Japan and China. The appeal is timeless. Absolutely worth having. Others in the series that you should get include, Seven Magic Orders (very popular) Pua Pua Lena Lena, Momotaro, Issunoboshi, Kama Pua'a.

This is a classic Japanese story, brightly brought to life by illustrator George Suyeoka.

Momotaro, the Peach Boy, comes into the lives of a childless, elderly couple. They raise Momotaro into a young man and he sets off on a journey to protect the family and village he loves from...well, I'll let you read it (or other reviews).

Young readers will as captivated by the story of good versus evil, just as I was as a young reader. Now, please pass the kibi dango!

This was a gift to my son-in-law for him to read to his new son, since this was his own favorite book as a child.
