With only a pet green monkey named Callaloo for company, Sugar Cane is lonely-her only consolation is her love of music. Often she stands at her window and sings, imagining that the echo of her voice is someone answering her. Then one night, someone does hear her song, but could this young man with a gift for music break the spell of Madam Fate and help Sugar Cane set herself free? Patricia Storaces lyrical and poignant retelling of the Rapunzel tale in a Caribbean setting is perfectly matched with Raúl Colóns lush illustrations. An unforgettable feast for the senses.
