Hoofen Floofen Island is a magical place where palm trees sway, the ocean sparkles, and sandy beaches and the sunshine bring smiles aplenty. Come along to hear the squawk of the seagulls, see the billowing sails and smell the salty air as Lena and her little doggie imagine the possibilities. Their imaginary trip starts when Lena wins a ticket to anywhere in the world. She quickly packs their bags and sets off on a fun adventure to a tropical island.

In life, Lena Kay Rufus (1980-2003) was a Native American child of an Ojibwe bear clan. She was also a writer who honored her imagination, playfulness, and love of travel in Hoofen Floofen Island. The story demonstrates how joy can grow from real or imagined life adventures, especially when shared with those we love best.

In death, Lena's writing lives on through her children's story, originally written at the tender age of ten.

Experience the fantasy of Hoofen Floofen Island as it is brought to life through delightful illustrations. An included discussion guide will encourage your child to write or draw their own tale.
