Review:

"Joyful, clever and witty … Great to read aloud" (Magpies Magazine)

"Jungle Drums has a fable-like subtext about self-acceptance and the dangers of trying too hard to fit in." (The Sydney Morning Herald)

"What a beautiful book to give to a child. The illustrations are amazing, the puzzle intriguing and the story is charming." (Amazon)

"The old saying 'be careful what you wish for' is an appropriate warning for this tale of Ngiri, the smallest warthog in Africa. Wanting to become something else, he wishes on a set of magic drums and causes all the warthogs to be transformed into more striking creatures while the other jungle animals lose their distinctive markings and features. The author performs two versions of this classic tale. The first reading is accompanied by the beating of drums, the screeching of jungle birds, and the sounds of falling rain. While evocative and energizing, they become distracting and detract from the story. No sound effects are included in the second version; the author presents his work with enthusiasm, enlivening the story with his expressiveness." (AudioFile Magazine)

Book Description:

A glorious audiobook set among the sounds of the African jungle.
