Editorial Reviews

"After helping her mother sell fruit all day in the hot marketplace, Sasifi uses her newly earned coins for a coveted ride home in a tap-tap, a Haitian jitney. . . . The smoothly written text is enhanced by beautiful watercolor paintings, done in the tranquil and shimmering hues of the Caribbean, that capture the sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and textures of the vibrant Haitian countryside and its distinctive populace. A satisfying journey." Booklist, ALA

"Add this simple story about Haiti to the growing list of high-quality picture books set in the Caribbean." Kirkus Reviews

"Lively storytelling and illustrations . . . There are many humorous moments in this sweet slice-of-life story; its brisk pace will keep youngsters engaged." School Library Journal
