Book Review: Tiwaka Goes to Waikiki, by Everett Peacock
Another fun read featuring my favorite parrot
Book three in the Life and Times of a Hawaiian Tiki Bar was just as much fun to read as the first two. I sort of expected more of the same types of stories as the first two books, but author Everett Peacock changed things up a little, taking the journey of Tiwaka the parrot out of the usual setting and into some crazy (and sometimes frightening) adventures.
Everett's books are always fun and easy to read, perfect for a relaxing weekend at the beach. I wouldn't call this book "light"...it certainly goes into some very heavy, serious stuff, but is balanced out nicely with just the right amount of levity and magic. Like a finely-crafted exotic cocktail, this book goes down smooth and leaves you with a great feeling at the end.
If you haven't read the first two books in the series you might not "get" all of it, so I'd recommend reading them in order.
If you dig the beach, the sun, dreams of Hawaii, surfing, sailing, or just having fun in the sun, you'll dig this book!
Five Stars all the way.
