Sugar Cane: A Caribbean Rapunzel

Written by: Patricia Storace

First line: Come, sit on the balcony and look out over the sea.

Why you should read this book: This lovely picture book offers a gorgeous version of the Rapunzel story set in the warm and lush environment of a tropical island. Some lovely inventions of this version include a sweet-loving monkey, precious gifts of jewelry with transformative powers, and a device that allows Sugar Cane to reunite with her parents after she reunites with her prince. Much development and details in both words and illustrations.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't think there's any excuse for stealing.
