This high-quality colouring-in book is A4 size on 150gsm paper. It includes 15 original illustrations including images taken from the film Sina ma le Tuna (Sina and the Eel) ready to be coloured in. The books were all printed locally. This book reinforces the story of Sina ma le Tuna through simple yet bold imagery that can help to build children’s creativity and motor skills through their own creative freedom. The images and story comes from my Samoan Grandmother's version of the popular legend of Sina and the Eel explaining the origin of the coconut.
