Chapter Books Set in Hawaii

Enjoying reading about Hawaii in Calvin Coconut: Trouble Magnet? I have always wanted to visit the beautiful islands of Hawaii and some day I'm sure I'll get there! In the meantime here are a few more books I plan to read to keep me in the island frame of mind...

City of Fire by Lawrence Yep (City Trilogy #1)

High Tide in Hawaii by Mary Pope Osborne (Magic Tree House #28)

Jack and Annie travel in their Magic Tree House back to an Hawaiian island of long ago where they make friends, learn how to surf, and encounter a tsunami.
