Moa, a loudmouth rooster, challenges Honu, a calm green sea turtle, in a race to determine who owns a clear, cool, Hawaiian spring. The bright Sun awakens them early the following morning, and the race begins. Honu uses her strength and perseverance to push against the strong currents of a stream. Moa wastes time sleeping in and then gets sidetracked as he nears the spring. In the end, steadfast Honu wins and boastful Moa is speechless for once. Honu and Moa is a humorous spin on a well-known story, set in beautiful Hawai‘i featuring characters whose cultural significance continue to influence the islands today.
