Críticas Tracey Baptiste scares up new audiences to learn about jumbies . . . She builds a fairy tale about a brave girl and her adventures among Caribbean creatures. --Washington Post A scary but cheerful tale that draws on Caribbean folk traditions. A great update on the 'town under supernatural attack' story with a marvelous setting. --Baltimore Sun Endlessly addictive and hypnotic --Essence Magazine Far more than just your average spooky supernatural story Baptiste uses the underpinnings of a classic folktale to take a closer look at colonization rebellion and what it truly takes to share the burden of tolerating the 'other.' Plus there are monsters. Gotta love the monsters. --Elizabeth Bird Fuse 8 The themes of fairness justice and retribution meld into a better than average evil witch story . . . This is a well written tale full of action with enough scary elements to satisfy fans of Adam Gidwitz's A Tale Dark and Grimm or Laura Amy Schlitz's Splendors and Glooms. --School Library Journal It's refreshing to see a fantasy with its roots outside Europe . . . this is a book worth reading simply for its originality. --Kirkus Reviews A spine-tingling tale rooted in Caribbean folklore that will have readers holding their breath as they fly through its pages. Be forewarned! This tale isn't some cozy tropical vacation and it's not for the weak at heart oh no! If you like spooky tales this is the book for you. Corinne's story is truly a welcome and refreshing edition to the world of fairytales. --Valerie R. Lawson This girl's got guts. Even as she wanders the mystery-shrouded forest full of creepy-crawlies from Haitian folklore and faces up to the frightening newcomer to her village Corrine La Mer brings badassery and wisdom beyond her years. Launching brave kids into the world of the horror novel and leading them through it with lyrical prose author Tracey Baptiste knows just how to seize kids' attention. --Foreword Reviews Reseña del editor When eleven-year-old Corinne stumbles into the forest on her Caribbean island home she rouses a jumbie--a malevolent spirit--who emerges to wreak havoc. Corinne must call on her courage and her friends and use ancient magic to stop the jumbie and save the island. Contraportada Behind her the bushes rustled. She turned just in time to see something move in the shadows. Surely it was only an animal. But what if it was another kind of thing entirely?A jumbie. Corinne La Mer claims she isn’t afraid of anything. Not scorpions not the boys who tease her and certainly not jumbies. They’re just tricksters made up by parents to frighten their children. Then one night Corinne chases an agouti all the way into the forbidden forest and shining yellow eyes follow her to the edge of the trees. They couldn’t belong to a jumbie. Or could they? When Corinne spots a beautiful stranger at the market the very next day she knows something extraordinary is about to happen. When this same beauty called Severine turns up at Corinne’s house danger is in the air. Severine plans to claim the entire island for the jumbies. Corinne must call on her courage and her friends and learn to use ancient magic she didn’t know she possessed to stop Severine and to save her island home. “A scary but cheerful tale that draws on Caribbean folk traditions. A great update on the ‘town under supernatural attack’ story with a marvelous setting.” —The Baltimore Sun “Entrancing and engaging . . . Baptiste enters an all-new folktale adaptation into our regular fantasy lore. Original. Haunting.”—Fuse 8 “Endlessly addictive and hypnotic.” —Essence   Biografía del autor Tracey Baptiste lived in Trinidad until she was fifteen; she grew up on jumbie stories and fairy tales.
