Once there was a little boy who played the ukelele. Wherever he'd go he'd play,Clink, clunk, clonk.His father was a magician. Wherever he'd go, he'd make things disappear,Zoop! Zoop!Soon the townspeople grew tired of the boy's noise and his father's tricks, and banished both of them to the edge of town.There they lived, until one day the terrible giant Abiyoyo appeared. He was as tall as a tree, and it was said that he could eat people up. Everyone was terrified, except the boy and his father, and they came up with a plan to save the town...Peter Seeger's storysong, made up for his own children, finds its perfect match in Michael Hays's masterful paintings. Together they make a richly vivid and exciting story.

A classic - quirky and just scary enough to be super fun! Pete Seeger was a fantastic folk singer and storyteller, and Michael Hays is an equally wonderful illustrator.
