A reading and book signing of Kōlea and the Chief’s Cloak A new children’s book by first-time author, Alice Flanders Guild, with illustrations by Georg James and John Dinsmore.

Kōlea and the Chief’s Cloak is the first in an intended series of children’s books featuring cultural objects on display in Hawai‘i’s museums and historic sites. In each story, Kōlea guides the reader through a history lesson while delivering a clear life lesson based on Hawaiian values.

Alice Flanders Guild comes naturally to her love of Hawaiian history and gift for story telling. Her great grandmother, Ku‘aihelani Campbell, was among the leaders in the movement to restore Queen Lili‘uokalani to the throne. Her grandmother, Kamokila Campbell was known for her dramatic recordings of Hawaiian legends and her mother, Muriel Flanders, was a composer whose songs commemorated Hawai‘i’s people, places and events. Alice’s fifty year volunteer career with the restoration and preservation of ‘Iolani Palace, led to her interest in stories associated with artifacts housed in Hawai‘i’s museums. Her fables are spun around actual objects in these collections. This first published book, Kōlea and The Chiefs Cloak is based on a true story of the famous battle of Moku‘ohai in Kona and the role that the chief’s cloak played in Hawaiian history. The story’s hero, Kōlea, is one of the most beloved of Hawai‘i’s native creatures.

Georg James and John Dinsmore are creative partners and long time friends of the author. Known for their stunning murals and eye-popping trompe l’oeil furniture, this is their first venture into book illustration. The three friends agree that this book was a marriage made in heaven.
