KIRKUS REVIEW

A return to the South Seas by the author/illustrator team of The Islands of Hawaii (1964: p. 297, J-95), this easy-going book combines a pleasant family story with information about daily activities. A fisherman's family develops a leaky roof on their hut, but with the perenially sunny skies they procrastinate about the repairs until eventually Mother gets fed up and takes matters into her own hands. The familiar situation provides a smooth bridge to the exotic customs of the Tahitians.
