Written in Tongan and English in parallel text, this book shares some of the author's memories about going to primary school in Kolovai, Tonga, from 1955 to 1959. When he began school children were still taught using slates, only later moving on to pen and paper. Books remained scarce. He describes the many ways the children supported each other and the importance of their friendships. One powerful memory is running away from school, daring to face the wrath of his father as well as the threat of village ghosts on his way home, and how friends rescued him from this nightmare. This is a revised edition of Manatu Melie 2: Slates and Ghosts/Makatohi mo e Tevolo with a new title, cover, and a few corrections.
