P.S. I read this review to my daughter and she asked that I add this--she liked it because "it's scary." Young people who are able to read it for themselves may find it a little less so, but I'm sure they will enjoy it as a terrific story of adventure with some nail-biting moments, at a minimum.
What a wonderful way to share these Caribbean folk tales with the world! I found this short novel a quick read featuring characters I will always remember. Thank you, Ms. McClean, for allowing us all a window on your world. And double thanks, for the extensive glossary.
