"Hawaiian Legends of Tricksters and Riddlers" takes 12 Hawaiian legends into one collection. The stories are short and would be great for a teacher read aloud after lunch or at the end of the day. They all have the commonality that the protagonist triumphs over evil by using trickery and their clever wits. The characters of these stories include Maui and Punia. Spirits are the common evil being throughout the stories that the protagonist much outwit.

These stories would be engaging for upper elementary students to hear when there is spare time in the classroom. The students could also read it as a confidence booster because the chapters/stories are so short; they would not get frustrated over long stories.
