"This is an adorable tale of a girl’s mission to find legendary figures that will be familiar to some readers and brand-new to others. Each creature is presented in a visually pleasing way. The bright images are the perfect way to illustrate this upbeat story." -SLJ

"Ren’s friendly cartoons illustrate Naya’s path out from her warm, pink home into the lush, green outdoors. Over the course of her journey, Naya comes across some striking creatures that could be jumbies, but they’re not quite scary enough. In fact, every creature she meets tonight is so friendly it joins her in her search for a scary jumbie." -Kirkus
