MAY Performance Update

It seems that the Kilauea Volcano eruptions are still driving interest with 3 of our five bestsellers for May being titles which feature the folklore and fairy tales from the Hawaiian Islands.

Closely related to Hawaiian folklore is our #4 bestseller for May – MAORI FOLKLORE, which features 23 Maori folklore stories. Why do I tell you this? The folklore of the Polynesian culture, of which there are three main centres – New Zealand in the south, Hawaii in the north, and the Tahitian group in the east – each separated by thousands of miles; you will find the same legends, told in almost the same way, and with very little variation in names and content.

Creeping in at #4 is a non-Pacific book – Yoruba Legends.
