Horn Book Review

When several children go missing, suspicion falls on the mischievous jumbies and on half-jumbie Corinne (The Jumbies). Corinne and friends set out across (and under) the ocean to secure help from powerful water jumbie Mama D'Leau. As Baptiste's rich seascape of Caribbean myth expands to Ghana's coast, she fully integrates the impact of the transatlantic slave trade on Caribbean people into her complex and deeply thoughtful narrative.
