KIRKUS REVIEW

Paakiki the donkey liked to take time out from his work to admire the Hawaiian scenery, and Keola the little boy did too. Paakiki is passed around among various impatient farmers but inevitably, of course, comes into Keola's willing possession--and together they stop to watch the sunlight in the water before going home to work. Paakiki the esthete balking is initially amusing but the repetition becomes tiresome even for the very young and the impression of island rural life seems too idyllic. The cartoonish illustrations show the donkey off nicely but don't do much for the scenery since the only colors are green and grey.
