Children's Literature - Victoria Crenson
There is a striking diversity of environments and lifestyles reflected in the portraits of children on these many tiny Pacific islands. Little Maxon lives in the rainforest and rides water buffaloes. Yorra, granddaughter of an island chief, lives near a city, watches TV and drinks Coke. Calvin explores his island in an outrigger raft, while William catches flying fish with his father on the ocean at night. Hermes makes it clear that for these young islanders, the challenge of the future will be to hang onto their cultural identities. Other books in this series explore the countries of Bolivia, China, Egypt, India, Mauritania, Morocco and Nepal.
