HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A children's picture book with ties to Hawaii is under attack before anyone has cracked open a copy.

"Maggie Goes on a Diet" will not be released until October.

The book's author, Paul Kramer, resides in Hawaii.

The book features a pudgy 14-year-old girl who gets thin enough to eventually become her school's soccer star.

Critics are attacking the book for encouraging kids to have an unhealthy obsession with weight.
