Eddie Wen Go: The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe (with audio cd) by Watermark Publishing at Youngster Book. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. What really happened to Eddie Aikau? In her inspirational children's book, Eddie Wen' Go: The Story of the Upside-Down Canoe, former Hokule'a
Illustrated in lavish watercolor by Melissa DeSica, the 64-page hardcover book tells the story of the Hokule'a's disastrous journey—over 30 years ago—from the canoe's launch to the crewmembers' rescue.
This edition includes a companion read-along CD which puts voices to Lyman-Mersereau's colorful cast of characters—including a wise grandmother whale and her curious grandson, a sassy young dolphin, a tough pidgin-speaking shark, and a free-spirited 'iwa (frigate bird)—who share in the telling of the story, with liberal use of Hawaiian words and phrases. Each of the older animals take their turn in relating their part in the tale, the events they saw, or the family lore handed down about the "upside-down canoe" and the brave human who went for help.
Together, the animals come to a conclusion about what happened to Eddie: "As long as there's an ocean and creatures in it, that's where Eddie will be." Eddie's example, the animals remind us, challenges us all to live courageously and to use our own gifts to be of service to others.
