The Jumbies
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Tracey Baptiste
Algonquin Young Readers
Paperback Release Date: August 26th, 2016

Corrine and her father live a peaceful life. Her mother died when she was younger, and they are all each other has. One day, two boys tie her mom’s necklace to an agouti (small mammal that looks kind of like a squirrel minus the bushy tail), making her chase after it into the forbidden forest. She gets spooked in there, especially when she sees yellow eyes. She runs out of the forest and into her father, who teases her about getting scared by a jumbie (spirit). She scoffs and they walk away, and the jumbie appears. Such is the beginning of Tracey Baptiste‘s The Jumbies.
