Plenty Saimin by Feng Feng Hutchins

Birthday boy Ah Kee couldn’t wait for his long life noodles. On his way to the market with Ma, he invites friend after friend to join him for noodles.Will Ma have enough to feed everyone he’s invited? As the noodles are being prepared, one by one, each guest brings an ingredient to add to the pot. Not too much; just what they can offer. Soon, all gather to celebrate Ah Kee’s birthday.

This book is a tribute to the late- 1950’s rural lifestyle in Hawai‘i, a time when folks farmed the land, took care of one another, and shared what they could – something we’d always like to remember and to continue to practice; important memories and values to pass on to youngsters.

About the Author

Feng Feng Hutchins was born in Malaysia and the best part of her birthdays was watching her mother make long life noodle soup for her. She brought those fond memories with her when she came to America and now, while cooking noodles for her own children here in Hawai‘i, she adds fresh ingredients from the island to make up this delicious saimin. This is her first children’s picture book.

Adriano F. Abatayo III was born and raised in Nanakuli, Hawai‘i. He began to show his artistic talents at the ripe age of 5 – drawing animals and people. As an adult freelance artist, he has received much praise for his work from the likes of Steven Spielberg, Barbra Streisand, and President Bill Clinton. Though he now calls California home, Hawai‘i will always remain a special part of his life.

The authors voice makes for a wonderful addition this muti cultural story that is the very make up of Hawaii's plantation days. Good story for grandparents to read to their grand kids. The illustrations draw the reader into Ah Kees world beautifully!
