In Happy as a Dolphin, young readers are invited to join a lively celebration of Hawai’i through whimsical illustrations and rhythmic verse.

Whether jumping from a wave, threading flowers one by one, or dancing gracefully as a hula dancer; children will enjoy the colorful illustrations in Happy as a Dolphin.

The verse is also an exercise in SIMILES, for example: “I’m as big as a mighty whale powered by his tail, and small as a hermit crab creeping like a snail.”

"Happy as a Dolphin" by author & illustrator Gill McBarnet

-------------------------

Gill McBarnet is one of Hawaii’s top children’s book authors. For over 30 years, Gill McBarnet has been writing and illustrating children’s books with Hawaiian settings, and her words and delightful illustrations have inspired a generation of island youngsters and young visitors to Hawai'i.

Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa, she moved to Hawaii in 1984 where she wrote her first children’s book about whales, an animal she fell in love with after coming to Maui. Gill’s book The Whale who wanted to be Small was the first of over a dozen books to be written by the acclaimed author.
