Audible Editor Reviews

Old Nyumbu, a wise wildebeest, promises Little Ngiri, the smallest warthog in Africa, that banging on a magical drum will keep the other animals from making fun of him. It does, but in a wholly surprising way. Graeme Base, the best-selling author who seems to have claimed or been short-listed for every honor that can be bestowed on Australian children’s book writers, performs his entertaining fable of the importance of appreciating and celebrating our differences, rather than letting them cause fear or inspire bullying. The performance includes a vibrant, jungle-themed soundtrack.

Publisher's Summary

Jungle Drums is a glorious audio book set amidst the sounds of the African jungle. Graeme Base's imagination and energy will astound you yet again in this delightful audio book that champions the underhog! This child friendly tale with fable-style storytelling has added magic on audio.

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.
