The Story of Moana: A Tale of Courage and Adventure
I think that The Story of Moana: A Tale of Courage and Adventure is a great book. It is about a girl named Moana. She has always loved the ocean since she was a toddler, but her father doesn’t let her go near the water. She has to go on a long and dangerous journey (sailing, of course) to find Maui, a powerful demigod (who has a HUGE ego) and restore the heart of Te Fiti because her island is dying. She succeeds, helps Maui get his fishhook back, befriends the demigod, and saves her island. I think that this is a good story. It’s not like most princess stories. Sure, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are good stories, but The Story of Moana is different. It tells the story of a brave, strong, adventurous girl who went on a journey to save her island. It’s not the same old boring princess story of “boy saves girl and they fall in love and get married, blah blah blah, and they live happily ever after.” I like this princess story a little bit better. I also like how Moana is Polynesian and not from some unrealistic fake kingdom. It’s set in a real place. I also think that that this book will be very empowering to young girls as it encourages strength and bravery. The Story of Moana: A Tale of Courage and Adventure is a great book, and I recommend it to ages nine to thirteen. This book is truly what the title says: a tale of courage and adventure.
