Avid reading makes him mentally tough, verbally agile, inquisitive, and very sassy. He watches Hawaiis unfolding with Kahu, his Menehune mentor- Miki, a Leprechaun, who once was Shakespeares shadow- Perfesser, an erudite American Indian Munchkin- Queen Esther of Ancient Persia, one of historys most exotic women- Rising Sun and Ah Soong, Asian pixies- as well as Ai, a beguiling Japanese girl who has become a Menehune.The boy is tormented by the ghosts lurking within his grandparents home.

They haunt his dark Hawaiian grandfather and pale Canadian grandmother because miscegenation-marriage of different racial types-is strongly opposed in much of America, and although seemingly tolerated in Hawaii, it causes severe consequences. The blond, blue-eye lad will inevitably have a confrontation with tormented Grandpa, who will insist that Arthur conceal the Hawaiian ancestry bringing him pride and self assuredness.Arthur faithfully records the origin of Hawaiian fairies, The Menehune Opera, in blank verse.
