Kui is a six year old African Spurred Tortoise that now lives in Kahaluu Oahu.
About 3 years ago I was watching Kui in the back yard and a thought came to mind that it would be a great idea to write a children's book about Kui. This started out as just something to do, but in time the story grew and now Kui's book has been published.
The book is titled The Travels of Kui the African Spurred Tortoise.
This book is inspired by Kui and Kui gets all the credit. The story is about Kui being born but he in the last tortoise of his egg shell. Kui finds himself all alone and hungry. When Kui goes off in search of his family and food, Kui's adventures begins. Kui encounters great friendship, and help from his new-found friends gives Kui the strength and encouragement to continue his adventure.
This book is to express the importance of family, friendship, and helping others. I hope this book will be an ongoing series as Kui travels the world introducing children of the different places in the world.
Kui has hopes his book will suggest that no matter who or where you are from we are all very much alike.
Hi, Stephen and Kui,
Yay for your book! Kui, I'm sure you will be telling Stephen many tortoise stories. And, Stephen, I hope you will write them all down so other people can know them.
Keep it slow and steady.
