Item Description

"Umi: The Hawaiian Boy Who Became a King"

By Robert Lee Eskridge

Copyright 1936.

Excerpt from jacket: "The legend of Umi, who became one of the kindest and most beloved kings of the island, has all the elements that make 'Cinderella' and 'The Prodigal Son' two of the most loved stories in the world. The thirty illustrations, thirteen pages of which are in full color, have been handled in an effective manner— bold masses, bright colors, and cleverly simplified detail. They add greatly to the beauty and enjoyment of the book."
