Book Description:

Far on the other side of the mountains, next to an enchanted castle, grows a tree with three golden oranges. It is there that the three brothers Santiago, Tom s, and Mat as must journey if they wish to find a wife.

Once they reach their destination, the brothers must carefully pick the oranges and bring them back to the old woman who lives in a cave on the cliffs overlooking the sea. But, 'In order to find your wives, you will need to work together,' the old woman has said. 'Woe to you if you do not follow my advice!'

Each of the brothers wants something different. Santiago wants a wife who is beautiful. Tom s wants one who is both rich and beautiful. But Mat as, the youngest brother, longs for a woman who is kind, joyful, and loving...someone he could love very much in return.

Will the brothers be able to avert misfortune by working together? Will they be strong enough to break the spell that a wicked sorcerer has placed on the castle?

Master storyteller Alma Flor Ada offers a poetic and magical retelling of a well loved traditional story about Blancaflor, a mythical young woman who appears in various stories throughout the Hispanic world. Reg Cartwright's boldly colorful and exquisitely stylized art is a perfect accompaniment.
