"Hawaiian Books"

What is the right way to say "Hawaiian Books?" Here are a few ideas I came up with:

Nā puke ʻo Hawaiʻi

Nā puke no Hawaiʻi

Nā puke Hawaiʻi

Are any of these correct? What are the differences? If any are wrong, why? Thank you.

I think 'Nā puke hawai'i' is the right version, since hawai'i is the word for hawaiian you don't need a no or 'o in front of it.

Na puke Hawai'i is correct, but literally translates to "The Hawaiian Books." Placing a "no" behind "puke" sounds more like "for" as in "the books for Hawaii".
