Pam the Dog sees her master Walter doing his homework. She looks over the boy's shoulder to see what he is studying. Walter is reading all about a beautiful place called Hawaii. Pam thinks the whole family should go there. Pam convinces mom and dad to fly to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. They all have a wonderful adventure going surfing, meeting Hawaiian children, flying in a helicopter over an erupting volcano, enjoying snorkeling and surfing, and seeing the beautiful tropical fish. They attend a luau and watch a Tahitian dancer, a fire knife dancer and hula dancers. The hula dancers say goodnight to the sun and then it's off to fly home and everyone says good night. Pam the Dog waves good night as we dream about our next adventure. But where will it be? Author Janice Nikitin Stravinskas dedicates this book to her son, Walter, and husband, Joseph, who are "both the light of my life and the joy of my life." After Walter brought home a picture he made for her in art class, "I was so touched by the story he presented to me that I decided to write this book." Pam the Dog: A Hawaiian Adventure is the first book of a series introducing geography to young children in a fun and entertaining way. A cum laude graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Stravinskas teaches music and lives in Massachusetts.
