This book is one of a series written for Kamehameha Schools Intermediate Reading Program (KSIRP) students. They are designed to increase students' reading skills and their knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture by focusing on topics such as the Hawaiian monarchy. The books are written by KSIRP staff in an effort to provide young readers with culturally relevant materials in language arts and Hawaiian studies. The authors are pleased that the books have been well received by both educational and general audiences. The books are being translated from their original English into Hawaiian through the efforts of the staff of the Hawaiian Studies Institute (HSI). Both KSIRP and HSI are Community Education Division programs of Kamehameha Schools Bernice Pauahi Bishop Estate. KSIRP is operated in collaboration with the State of Hawaii Department of Education at several intermediate schools throughout the state.

Hawaii existed as a unified nation for eighty-three years, from 1810 to 1893, closing with the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani. Two dynasties ruled, the Kamehameha dynasty and the Kalakaua dynasty. A dynasty is a series of rulers who belong to the same family. The first sovereign was Kamehameha the Great, the founder of the kingdom. The second and third sovereigns were Kamehameha's sons, Liholiho (Kamehameha II) and Kauikeaouli (Kamehameha III). They were followed by Kamehameha's grandsons, Alexander Liholiho (Kamehameha IV) and Lot Kapuaiwa (Kamehameha V).
