Description


From Coretta Scott King Award–winning creator Ashley Bryan comes a rhythmic picture book of five Nigerian folktales.

From the silly tale of a monkey’s speech being sprinkled with shoo bee do’s and hay baa ba ree bop’s to the more poignant story of two young friends—a snake and a frog—being warned away from each other by their prejudiced mothers, these five tales and their striking woodcut illustrations are sure to enchant young readers.
