Lily is reading a bedtime story to her younger brother and sister. The story tells about how they all became a family and about their life on an alpaca farm in Hawaii. Lily discovers a secret gate which she goes through to help Uncle Santee and the Menehune prepare for Christmas.
This is a story for you Lilipua, my little sister. Mama says your name means Miniature Flower, but she always laughs afterwards. I think it's a joke between her and Papa. Lilipua really means "This Flower Could Make You Jealous". A lot of things happened before you came to our family. I'm going to tell you some of them now. These things are really, really, really important. So, listen very carefully. And whatever you do, don't fall asleep! OK?
