    Patricia C. McKissack’s books have received numerous awards, including the Coretta Scott King, Newbery Honor, and the Caldecott Medal. She teams up with storyteller Onawumi Jean Moss for this suspenseful, but not too scary, story taken from Gullah folklore. Left home alone because of a stomachache, Precious cleverly outwits the Boo Hag by singing her own wonderful little song.
