Kahuna is a great magician that lives on a beautiful island in Hawaii. He performs magic shows and stunts for the local Hawaiians and the visiting tourists. He shocks the crowds with his incredible and daring stunts. Kahuna in Hawaiian means "a secret." Kahuna has a big secret that he is keeping from everyone.
Kahuna was struck by lightning when he was 20 years old. He was never the same. All of the hair was burned off the top of his head. When his hair grew back, it was solid white! He never cut his hair again. He grew a long white beard and moustache. He isn't just a magician; he is also an escape artist. He looked just like Merlin the Magician, and he performed magic acts and stunts like The Great Houdini. Disappear for a while in this magical story, and find out the big secret that Kahuna is keeping.
Any additional comments?
You would think that getting struck by lightning would be a terrible thing, but for Kahuna it was magical! Narrator, Alan Philip Ormond, was perfect for this book. HIs voice was very mysterious and exciting. His narration made me feel like I was actually there with Kahuna at one of his awesome shows! I loved his voice and look forward to hearing more from him. I think children will absolutely love this suspenseful book filled with so many unbelievable acts of magic.
