Pono is a little Hawaiian menehune who doesn’t understand why he and his friends constantly play pranks on human giants: They hide garden tools, move objects around, and do other silly things. However when Mrs. Miyamato trips and breaks her foot because of his actions, Pono starts questioning his and friends’ behavior. Will he continue down this path to follow the “little people tradition” or will he take a righteous path and make amends?
Pono, the garden guardian is a children's story about being a good person and do everything in your life for the right reasons and not necessarily because Society says so.
