About the Book
A friendship is tested by love and magic in this beautiful, Caldecott Honor-winning retelling of a traditional tale from the French West Indies.

Clement and Hippolyte are best friends who live together on the lush tropical island of Martinique. They set off together toward the woman Clement loves so he can propose, but her uncle--a quimboiseur, a wizard--doesn't approve of the match. When his niece flees with the two inseparable friends, the vengeful man sends evil magic after them. Hippolyte may be able to protect the young couple--but will he lose his own life in the process?
About the Author: Robert D. San Souci and Brian Pinkney combine their talents in this beautiful retelling of a traditional tale from the French West Indies. The result is an extraordinary story of romance, intrigue, and incomparable courage in which the truest of friends remain faithful to the very end.
