Outcasts become heroes in this picture book adaptation of a South African lullaby and folk story.


No one wants to hear the little boy play his ukelele anymore... Clink, clunk, clonk. And no one wants to watch his father make things disappear... Zoop! Zoop!


Until the day the fearsome giant Abiyoyo suddenly appears in town, and all the townspeople run for their lives and the lives of their children! Nothing can stop the terrible giant Abiyoyo, nothing, that is, except the enchanting sound of the ukelele and the mysterious power of the magic wand.
