Summary
"I want to touch the moon!" exclaimed the governor. On a Caribbean island during the colonial period, a governor seeks to find a feat for which he will be widely remembered. He enlists the help of a carpenter to cut down all of the island's trees and build a tower tall enough to reach the moon. Is the governor successful? Or is he stuck with a tower that is too short on an island with no trees? Find out what happens in this cautionary environmental folktale. Immerse yourself in some of the culture and values of the people of the Caribbean through the captivating animations of this wonderful story
