About this title


Winner of both the Alcuin Society Design Award and the Storytelling World Honor Award, 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.

About the Author:

Richardo Keens-Douglas, an actor, playwright, author, and storyteller, has published several picture books for children, including The Trial of the Stone and The Nutmeg Princess. His works have appeared on American Bookseller's "Pick of the Lists" and been nominated for the Governor General's Award and the Silver Birch Award, among others. He presently divides his time between Grenada and Toronto.

Marie Lafrance was born in Quebec City. Following her love for drawing, she studied graphic arts at a CEGEP in Vieux-Montréal and also studied etching at Studio Graff. At age twenty-three Marie began working as a freelance illustrator, applying her talent to school textbooks, magazines, book covers and posters.
