It's been very distressing seeing all the destruction through Vanuatu caused by Cyclone Pam. The people are suffering due to lack of water, food, shelter and medicine. Food gardens have been obliterated. It will take many months before even the speediest crops will yield again. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Vanuatu, and those affected in Kiribati, and the Solomon Islands.

The illustrations are the best. Patterns of shells and geometric prints in mostly blues and greens are on each page. The wildlife are depicted clearly too. Each has a label beside it, naming the creature in both English and Palawa Kani. There is also a glossary at the back.
Truly a work of art and with spiritual depth, this book is a treasure.
