On the 12th day of Christmas: Jungle Drums

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, twelve drummers drumming…and Jungle Drums, written and illustrated by Graeme Base. 

Little Ngiri is the smallest Warthog in Africa. Tired of being teased by his bigger brothers and sisters, he wishes things could be different. 

When Old Nyumbu the Wilderbeest gives Ngiri a set of magic drums, he is sure his wish is about to come true. 

But all the animals of the jungle are in for a BIG surprise as Ngiri's wish is granted in a most unexpected way.

Read our review.
