Beneath its leaves sits a little blue house, and beneath its eaves, sits little Anuenue and her mama. On magical Hawaiian nights such as this, thoughts take flight. Gazing at the mango tree, Anuenue asks her mama: What if I ate up all those mangoes one by one, and I got so full of them that I turned into a mango tree? Capturing the spirit of every child s imagination and combined yearning for and fear of independence, Moon Mangoes explores the what if back-and-forth exchange between child and parent, and captures that magical before-bedtime hour when anything is possible and love is constant.
