They placed the lei around her neck and a frangipani crown on her head. They put bangles around her wrists and the ukulele in her arms. 'Now you are a real island princess.'
Based on the experiences of the author's mother, The Old Frangipani Tree at Flying Fish Point is a touching story that follows a young girl named Faith, whose family cannot afford a fancy dress costume for the school's carnival. Luckily, her family have just the costume in mind.
With breathtaking illustrations that boldly draw us in to the narrative, The Old Frangipani Tree at Flying Fish Point is a delightful story for early to middle readers about courage, community and creativity.
