Menehunes and Whatnot


Cheryl Linn Martin's newest book just released!

Menehunes Missing is another action-packed mystery for the younger reader featuring the kids of the Hawaiian Island Detective club, Leilani, Maile and Sam. And sometimes Leilani's pesky little brother, Kimo.

If you have middle schoolers who love to read, I highly recommend this series! Cheryl also has a very cool website, kid-friendly with great Hawaiian factoids and games.

Do you buy your children books? As a kid, what was your favorite genre for reading? Any guess as to what a Menehune is?

I do buy some children's books, and also MG, and YA.

Congrats on your new book releasing. I have no idea what that is and I wanted to play fair and not google! lol

My kid love the Diary of a Wimpy kids series. And I usually buy through his book fairs. He loves "shopping" for his reads! :)

Don't know what a Memehune is. I bought my kids lots of books of many types. I used to love Alcott and someone quirky and fun named Edward Eager.

The book you show looks like lots of fun. I browse the kiddie portion of bookstores regularly and get into some great series that way.

Congratulations to Cheryl on the new release! I think my younger child would love this book.

I have young readers, but I read a bit of YA, too.

Congratulations, Cheryl!

My favorite books growing up were The Boxcar Children and Little House on the Prairie series. I guess you would put that into the adventure genre?

As a kid, I loved the Little House on The Prairie books, Sue Barton (nursing), Anne of Green Gables, and many others.
