Maui the Demigod: An Epic Novel of Mythical Hawai'i by Steven Goldsberry (, Paperback). The story of the demigod and hero, Maui, is one of the best-known of all Polynesian myths and legends. Retold here by Rohini Chowdhury. The protagonist of the film, Moana, persuades him to help her return it.

In his song "You're Welcome," composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Maui mentions and takes credit for several of the deeds he is credited with in folklore. This version of Maui incorporates elements of the Māui from Māori mythology and other Polynesian narratives. Maui's mother, so says a New Zealand legend, had her home in the under-world as well as with her children.

Maui determined to find the hidden dwelling place. His mother would meet the children in the evening and lie down to sleep with them and then disappear with the first appearance of dawn.

This very sweet book tells the story of Moana from the perspective of my favorite character in the film, Maui. Narrated by the entertaining demigod himself, The Mighty Maui Makes a Friend explores the universal theme of friendship in a fresh and entertaining way.
