In ancient times, Polynesians traveled across the vast Pacific Ocean without using navigational instruments; only natural signs and elements such as the sun, moon, stars, ocean swells, and land-based seabirds were their guides. In this lively book, Hoku and her puppy Poki use similar navigation techniques as they take little ones on an exciting night-time journey in her canoe, the Hokulani (Heavenly Star). Will the glow-in-the-dark stars and constellations help Hoku and Poki survive stormy waters, Shark Bay, and Shipwreck Sea? And what about those pirates? Sensitive text and vibrant illustrations make this a charming read-aloud for children and parents.

A caterpillar’s accidental journey to strange places.

One day Mr. Caterpillar was taking a walk, bit by bit by bit by bit. He was having fun swaying to and fro on a leaf when, without warning, whoosh, a gust of wind blew him off.

Poor Mr. Caterpillar shut his eyes, expecting the worst, but suddenly found himself sitting on something firm. It was a man’s hat. The man went on his way until he met someone he knew. He tipped his hat in greeting and, whoosh, Mr. Caterpillar slipped off, right onto a lady’s shoulder.

So begins a grand and remarkable adventure in which Mr. Caterpillar takes a train ride and narrowly escapes a very threatening big black leather shoe. The book’s hero ultimately gets taken home and placed safely into a backyard tree. Adding to the story’s enjoyment are exuberant illustrations and the text’s bouncy cadence, which offers an irresistible invitation to be read aloud.
