Item Details

Reveals some of the ways a story can be told with music, including music videos and dance. The feature book: Banished from the town for making mischief, a little boy and his father are welcomed back when they find a way to make the dreaded giant Abiyoyo disappear. A boy and his father are banished because the father, a magician, has a habit of making things vanish. But when the monster Abiyoyo appears - the father makes Abiyoyo disappear, and all is forgiven. 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. Reviews other books with related themes.
