A very fun romp through the highjinx and fun times Pineapple Sam had growing up on Kauai in Hawaii, experiences very unique to the smaller Hawaiian islands. His dialog brings all his stories alive and his descriptions let you "see" what Sam did. Very, very enjoyable! Mahalo, Sam!
Truly enjoyable tales of growing up on Kauai when things were simpler. Sam shows you pictures with his words of what Kauai was like, and with his dialog, puts you right in the room (or on the mattress on the floor or in the stolen boat) with him and his buddies. He writes with warmth, humor and fondness for the island where he grew up.
A very funny, colorful look at growing up on Kauai. Pineapple Sam writes as if you are right there with him and his friends, coming along on their hijinks. I am still wondering which hospital used to have a fountain outside the entrance . . . and after reading these stories, I think I know why none of our hospitals has one anymore!
Warm, sweet and funny recollections of a boy growing up on the small tropical island of Kauai and his experiences traveling on the "mainland," as those of us in Hawaii call the continental United States. Makes you wistful for your own youthful days of traveling, hanging out with friends and living life just for the fun of it. Very enjoyable!
If you've ever wanted to know what it would be like to hitchhike across the United States, living almost carefree and doing whatever you like -- or if you want to re-live those days if you were fortunate enough to experience them yourself, then you will love this story! It feels like you are right there with Pineapple Sam and his friends and everyone he meets, through all the good, bad and ugly. I felt like I went on many fabulous adventures while reading this book. Thank you, Sam, for sharing!
