IF: Opinion... about the Hula

Puapualenalena hulas for the Uhane, by Paul Zdepski
Puapualenalena and the U'hané in a Hula Competition, 2008 - Digital
Page 6 from the Hawai'ian folk story, Puapualenalena, Wizard Dog of the Waipi'o Valley by Thomas Cummings, Jr. The Evil/Mischievous U'hané have encircled Puapualenalena and are poo-pooing his attempt at Hula.

They begin to sing a ditty:

He looks so ugly
He sounds too shrilly
He dances poorly,
Truly, truly.

We'll chat as well, but quite, quite sweetly
We'll show him how we dance right fleetly
We'll know he'll know we're very neatly,
The best at chant and dance completely.

Of course... our hero pup wins. Due out in 2009, the story is part of the Trickster project with Matt Dembicki, editor.

You're WAY ahead of me! I've only seen my little bit and a few hints posted by Matt Dembicki. I know it's going to be something special. So many talented and thoughtful people are involved. It can only be a good thing...
