About the Book
Inspired by Disney Animation Studios' latest film, Moana, this middle grade novel features characters and adventures based in the rich culture of the islands of Oceania. It includes original content in the form of mini folk tales interspersed throughout the story of the film. Bonus temporary tattoos included!
My Take on the Book
This chapter book tells the entire story of Moana. The story gives the reader excellent details about Moana's growing up. Moana's gramma tells the tale of the warrior Maui being struck from the sky and losing his fish hook. The tale continues because TeFiti lost her heart. Thus the darkness, lack of fish in the ocean, and the TeKa demons take over the island and the livelihood of the island.
Although this is not an illustrated book, the text is so rich in descriptive language that the reader will easily be able to use their mind to see the action in the story.
The reader will see Moana's challenges as she tries to solve the problems and face TeKa. She convinces Maui to help even with out his magical fish hook.
Moana's story is one of perseverance, love of family, devotion to a cause, and courage. I am eager to see the Disney movie now that I have read this story.
