Summary

In Lauele Town, Hawaii, Kona Inoye has a problem he can’t tell anyone about. There’s something under his bed that craves sweet-smelling things. Kona’s trying to handle it as best he can, but as a kid things are not always in your control.

There are two versions of Kona’s story in this eBook. The story is the same, but the language used in much of the dialogue is different. The first version is written in Standard American English and assumes the reader isn’t familiar with Hawaiian island culture or the local slang’s commonly used phrases and words. The second version uses Hawaiian Pidgin English and Hawaiian words and phrases without explanation.

If you have no idea why this is an option, please read the Standard American English version.

If you know the difference between makai and mauka, you know which one for pick.
