Join the gringa in a French West Indies folkloric tale recreated by Robert D. San Souci. A Caldecott medal winner, the book is filled with lovely illustrations by Brian Pinkney. Although this story features zombies and evil spells, don’t let that scare you away! It is filled with much more that is good like a romantic love story and dashing, noble, young men who conquer evil with good. So, don’t be afraid to let the little ones enjoy a story that will surely teach them the value of courage and loyalty.
