A little fish learns the hard way when he disobeys his mother’s warning and goes near a forbidden underwater pipe. In the process, he loses all his scales. It’s now up to Kelekolio, the little manini, to find help in replacing his scales and to cover up his mistake.

This book is available both in bilingual and all-Hawaiian language versions.

Lilinoe Andrews is the author of several Hawaiian-language children’s titles developed for use in Punana Leo preschools and Hawaiian language immersion education. Her works include Na Keiki Elima – The Five Keiki and Kelekolio, the Little Manini, all of which are produced in collaboration with ‘Aha Punana Leo and Kamehameha Publishing.

Maile Ka‘ai-Cockett is a Maui-born artist known for her work featuring native Hawaiian flora and fauna.

The ‘Aha Punana Leo, Inc. was established in 1983 to revitalize the Hawaiian language, primarily through schools taught entirely in Hawaiian. In 1896, a law was passed banning the use of Hawaiian as a medium of education in Hawai‘i’s classrooms. After 90 years, this law was reversed in 1986. The ‘Aha Punana Leo has grown to include eleven preschools, three K-12 sites, a scholarship program and other educational programs that promote the growth of Hawaiian as a daily language.
