The Christmas Gift of Aloha
Merry, a newly trained Christmas Elf, falls from Santa’s sleigh and finds himself in Hawaiʻi. He is dismayed that there is no snow, reindeer, or other signs of Christmas in this strange land. With the help of Mele the Menehune, Merry soon discovers the wonders of a Hawaiian Christmas. To Merry’s surprise, the menehune children give him the best gift of all.
Lisa Matsumoto’s story and Michael Furuya’s illustrations create a delightful and heart warming holiday story capturing the true meaning of Christmas while celebrating Hawaiʻi’s spirit of Aloha.
