A Return to Sugarland, Where Things Have Gone Sour

Second Book in Children's Series Brings Back Familiar Faces for a New Adventure

THORNHILL, Ontario, April 21, 2010 — A grandfather with a knack for storytelling, author Harold Krakower offers readers the second book in the charming Sugarland Series with Sugarland: Volume 2 Trouble in Sugarland (published by AuthorHouse). The book brings back Sarah and all her friends for another adventure in Sugarland, the make-believe world of candy cane fields, chocolate chip roads, lollypop furniture and a chocolate lake.

In this book, Sarah is looking forward to the upcoming party for her sixth birthday. After a visit to the party store and a birthday dinner at home, Sarah goes to bed. Soon she wakes up to find Alice the Butterfly in her room, ready to take her off to Sugarland to help her friends, who have no place to go because Chocolate Falls is blocked and there are no chocolate chips on chocolate chip road!

Readers will recognize all of Sarah's friends from the first book – and even make a new one. Illustrator Linda Shaw also returns to add her enchanting touch to the story with beautiful full-page illustrations.

Krakower says that Trouble in Sugarland shares a similar tone as his previous book.

"The wonderful thing about the Sugarland book is imagination," he explains. "They are truly stories without any hidden meanings or lessons to be learned… just a good old-fashioned story full of make-believe that every child will love."

Harold Krakower lives in Thornhill, Ontario, Canada with his wife, Molly. The couple has two children and enjoys spending time with their grandchildren. For more information, please visit
