“Endlessly addictive and hypnotic.” Essence Magazine

“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

  1. Just started reading “Jumbies” to my ten year old daughter. We’ve read several chapters. She’ll read on her own but she’s growing up so fast. There aren’t many days left when she’ll want me to read to her before bed. I’m so glad I found this book. She loves it-and I do, too.

  2. I’m so glad you and your daughter are enjoying it Kathleen!
