    definately a new fun & yet scarry book for young children with the message of not judging only on beauty . Be carefull with strangers. great storytelling weaving you into the time and place.

    This is a folk story which as a child ,many variations of deabless were told . This one is beautifully illistrated and it takes you to the caribean island with beautful pictures. The tale is beautifully told .Be kind and nice to strangers. You must always be wise and know when to say no. I have read it to class rooms at holloween and the kids loved it and had lots of fun questions regarding the diablesse. I purchased my copy at the air-port while on vacation in Grenada.
