Product Information

Originally published in 1954, The Green Song tells the story of a little coqui, who travels from his green home in the sugar cane field to New York City to see the world of many colors he heard stories about.

Coquí (pronounced ko-kee) is the common name for several species of small frogs that are endemic to Puerto Rico. Their scientific genus name Eleutherodactylus means "free toes", because unlike many frogs, they don't have webbed feet. The coqui is a very popular creature throughout the island and enlivens the evenings with its timid ko-kee from which it get its name. The coquis begin to sing when the sun goes down at dusk, singing all night long until dawn.

"It is called, of course, the Green Song. The coquis believe that this song holds everything together. They believe that the Green Song holds the stars in place and makes the moon shine. They think that if they did not sing the Green Song every evening, the stars would fall down and everything would be upset..."

A beautiful Puerto Rican fantasy to read like a pure poetry from start to finish!
