Publisher's synopsis

The whimsical story of a little boy with a broken heart who meets a young girl who shares his secret. This timeless and elegant tale is transformed into a beautiful grown-up story by the use of subtle analogies, such as the use of sapotes as forbidden fruit. A celebrated children’s picture book debut by Dub Leffler.
