A custom story told and re-told in the village of Are Are Malaita Solomon Islands, for generation after generation.
Great story and while I figured out the ending, it had a nice twist to the end. Just a reminder - be nice to old people only by the Grace of God do you get to become one.

I read this great tale from Solomon Islands yesterday, and I really enjoyed it. It was a story of two brothers, of whom the other was bad & other good. The story was old and had many significances. It was great to read a tale from so far away, it's nice to learn something new from these ancient tales.
I also found some nice pictures from Solomon Islands over here:

The booklet arrived here yesterday and I already finished reading it. I liked it very much and I think it was the best story I read so far from the Oceania-area. The story was entertaining and I liked the ending :)

Thanks for sharing this book. I'll send it on to Piggeldy as soon as I get the address...

Well, I expected a small book - but it was smaller than I ever imagined: 18 pages! At least I hope to finish it soon, though I'll only be able to read it in the evenings, right before I go to bed... However, the book will travel on via airmail instead of surface mail: it shouldn't be that expensive :-)

Edit, February 15th: Well, it was a nice evening yesterday, and I finished the book. I liked the story, it somehow reminds me of "normal" (german) fairy-tales, but with a whiff of South Seas' atmosphere.

Edit, February 21st: I'm so sorry, but I haven't got the time to get to the post office :-( I really hope to get there next week!

I received this booklet yesterday and finished reading it last night. It is a very unpretentious book that shares one traditional story from the Solomon Islands. It is an easy read and an enjoyable one too. We cheer for Susu'ire Masike anbd we hope for Susu're Paina punishment as the tale unfolds. It is interesting to notice that all cultures have stories to teach us to be good, patient, and respectful of others, even when life is unfair to us. In this case, this traditional tale does it with the backdrop of the Pacific.

I used this book for the 5-5-5 challenge. Thank you so much for sharing this. I will contact the next bxer and send the book on its way.
