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.
Ashley Bryan (1923–2022) grew up to the sound of his mother singing from morning to night, and he shared the joy of song with children. A beloved illustrator, he was named a Newbery Honoree for his picture book, Freedom Over Me. He also received the Coretta Scott King—Virginia Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award; the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award; was a May Hill Arbuthnot lecturer; a Coretta Scott King Award winner; and the recipient of countless other awards and recognitions. His books include Freedom Over MeSail AwayBeautiful BlackbirdBeat the Story-Drum, Pum PumLet It ShineAshley Bryan’s Book of Puppets; and What a Wonderful World.
