Evangeline of the Bayou

(2) 4-6 Illustrated by Joseph Kuefler. Evangeline is a twelve-year-old aspiring "haunt huntress" learning the family trade at her grandmother's Louisiana bayou home. When Gran is hired to dispatch a werewolf-like rougarou in New Orleans, Evangeline discovers that she may not have inherited Gran's powers after all. Eldredge's fantasy world, based in Creole mythology, is vividly depicted and full of detail. It's a satisfying coming-of-age story with bonus supernatural battles. Glos.
