Summary


New York Times bestselling author Tracey Baptiste and acclaimed illustrator Amber Ren take readers on a fun, creepy, storytime-ready romp through a forest filled with creatures from Caribbean folklore.

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....

Looking for a Jumbie is a gentle, bouncy, and creepily fun read-aloud inspired by traditional Caribbean tales.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Baptiste brings the Caribbean folklore of her middle-grade fantasy series to the younger set with this picture book about a Black girl on the hunt for jumbies. Nearly all children become afraid of things that go bump in the night, and Naya is no exception. She's fascinated by--and a little frightened of--jumbies, spirits her storybook says can be helpful or scary. Determined to "find a scary one," she ventures into the night, and in the nearby tropical forest--colored in shadowy teal, purples, and greens--Naya encounters a series of jumbies, which range in appearance from small and humanoid to wolflike to brightly glowing like a genie. Despite some unsettling first impressions, all the jumbies prove kind and helpful as they join Naya in her search. Eventually they all end up back at Naya's house, ready for a good night's sleep. The illustrations are colorful and dreamlike, and Ren pays special attention to accentuating the features of characters. A nice addition to offerings on being afraid of the dark, monsters, or nighttime adventures."
