The Jumbies Book Recommendation #iLoveMG

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

The Jumbies Series

Recommended by Dashiell

The Jumbies by Tracey Baptiste is a great book about the main character Corrine. Corrine has to go on an adventure... Corrine gets her friends and convinces them to help her out. 

Along the way, Corrine finds herself with a new adopted mother... Corrine is not so sure who this person is though, because she had just seen a strange lady in the streets of the market. Corrine is known on the island for selling the best oranges on the island! She grows her oranges at the small orange tree near her mother's headstone. 

Corrine's papa, Pierre, is not so sure either about this lady but none the less Pierre goes along with her.   

Overall, its a great story about a girl and her friends and their adventure to defeat the jumbies!!

The Jumbies is the first book of a trilogy, followed by Rise of the Jumbies and The Jumbie God's Revenge
