Looking for a Jumbie
Author: Tracey Baptiste
Illustrator: Amber Ren
I’m looking for a jumbie. I’m going to find a scary one.
But Mama says jumbies exist only in stories. So Naya sets out on a nighttime adventure to find out for herself.
No such thing, say the friends she makes along the way.
But Naya is sure that jumbies are real. Some have big mouths. Or thick fur. Or glowing skin. Or sharp teeth. Kind of like her new friends . . .
New York Times bestselling author Tracey Baptiste’s picture book debut is a storytime-ready tale full of friendly monsters from Caribbean folklore.
