Tracey Baptiste - Rise of the Jumbies

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 10:30 am

When local children begin to go missing, villagers suspect that half-jumbie Corinne La Mer had something to do with it. Corinne sets off to prove them wrong, and her journey takes her across foreign lands to encounter mermaids, a sunken slave ship, and heart-racing danger. Some sequels don’t live up to their predecessor, but this page-turner definitely does. The jumbies are back, bringing lots of Caribbean and West African magic with them. While chock-full of exhilaration and undersea adventure, Baptiste’s story also touches on broader themes of how people respond to what they don’t understand. Ages 8-12
