Abiyoyo: Based on a South African Lullaby and Folk Song
by Pete Seeger, illustrated by Michael Hays

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! Zop!  Until the day the fearsome giant Abiyoyo suddenly appears in town, and all the townspeople run for their lives! 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. This story is based on a popular South African lullaby and folk song.

Publisher's Weekly called this book "a triumph of storytelling and art."  Great for folk tales units or if you are looking for book set in other countries (this one's set in South Africa).
