This is the eerie and colorful tale of the legendary creature—half human, half demon—that roams the Caribbean night, and how a brave Grandma outwits it.


“For children who enjoy a bit of spookiness, this is a masterfully told tale.”
—Today’s Parent

“The story, with its mysterious and threatening villainess, is delightfully chilling; at the same time it offers the solid comfort of the resourceful and wary Granny, and concludes with a quirky twist that brings the tale from the long-ago-and-far-away to the here-and-now.”
—Canadian Book Review Annual
