ABSTRACT/SUMMARY OF THE STORY:

Beneath the rippling island water, near the shadows of a cave, lurked ten great sharks and the shark king who ruled them. The sharks never swam far from shore, for the cave was filled with fat lobsters red as sunset and sweet as coconut. A young Hawaiian boy, Punia, tricks the king of the sharks.
