About the Book

Many, many years ago, the flying spirit, Hoa Manu, appeared in a dream to the king of Hiva and told him to lead his people to a new land. The king sent seven explorers to find this small island, and they named it Rapa Nui.

Hundreds of years later, Hoa Manu returns to Rapa Nui, also called Easter Island, but the island is not like it once was. All the wondrous Toromiro trees have disappeared. With the help of the spirits of the seven explorers, Hao Manu searches for her beloved trees with the bright yellow flowers. These trees once held the history of Easter Island, written in rongorongo, but where have they gone?

Rongo Rongo & the Last Toromiro Tree teaches an important lesson about history and conservation. The legends of Easter Island and rongorongo continue to stump historians and linguistic experts to this day. Maybe, by looking with fresh eyes, you can help solve the mystery.
