Description

Virginia Hamilton has once again brought her well-loved trickster, the invisible Jahdu, to life in this updated collection of eleven previously published, and four newly created, stories. Jahdu is based on a centuries-old folklore tradition, yet the tales themselves are original and drawn from Hamilton's imagination. "The language is vigorous and masterfully honed, while the character of lively, powerful, self-defining Jahdu has appeal."--Kirkus Reviews
