But did she paint what the pineapple company wanted most of all?Amy Novesky's lyrical telling of this little-known story and Yuyi Morales's gorgeous paintings perfectly capture Georgia's strong artistic spirit. The book includes an author's note, illustrator's note, bibliography, map of the islands, and endpapers that identify Georgia's favorite Hawaiian flowers.
