On Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea, Sovereignty Restoration Day, Kili and his grandmother make their way to Kaniakapupu, Kamehameha III’s summer residence, to celebrate. During one of the biggest luʻau ever held in Hawaiʻi, Kili follows a butterfly into the Nuʻuanu forests, where he stumbles upon the famous singing snails. Crowl weaves a wonderful tale about these native treasures that exist nowhere else in the world.
