What happens when a heʻe (octopus) and a puhi (eel) cross paths? Things disappear! It’s not magic; it’s an appetite. Follow along in this beautifully illustrated journey that starts from the limu (seaweed) and continues up the ocean’s food chain.

The Kamaiki Series of fun and colorful bilingual board books is based on contemporary Hawaiian culture and is designed for young children ages 0 to 3.

Ka‘ōhua’s husband and three keiki inspired her to write the stories in the Kamaiki Series.
