MAUI MAUI - by Stephen COSGROVE; illustrated by Robin JAMES
 Beautifully illustrated and full of wisdom, the book, Maui-Maui, was one of the major influences which caused me to become an environmentalist.
 I remember when I read it, it wasn't a totally comfortable experience (but then neither was Orwell's brilliant political allegory "Animal Farm"); the "anenomies", who over-fish the ocean in the story, can be seen as a metaphor for humans, and it was an uncomfortable experience for me to identify with these creatures in the story, when I realised that they were causing such destruction. But who ever said learning and developing wisdom were painless?
 Then again, I also have fond memories of the book - which is why I wrote this review. It's a great book! So if you want to foster an environmental consciousness in a child, I say give them this book! I know I will :)
