Jumbies cover small-gifReviews:
“This girl’s got guts . . . 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

“Entrancing and engaging, frightening but never slacking, Baptiste enters an all-new folktale adaptation into our regular fantasy lore. Best suited for the kids seeking lore where creatures hide in the shadows of trees, but where they’re unlike any creatures the kids have seen before. Original. Haunting.”Betsy Bird, School Library Journal’s Fuse #8 blog

“It’s refreshing to see a fantasy with its roots outside Europe…this is a book  worth reading simply for its originality.” Kirkus Reviews

“Endlessly addictive and hypnotic.” –Essence
