Pokko y el tambor (Pokko and the Drum)

Illustrated by Matthew Forsythe / Translated by Alexis Romay

About The Book

El artista Matthew Forsythe, premio de honor del E.B. White Read Aloud, entrega un libro sobre un tambor mágico, un bosque esmeralda y una ranita que se atreve a hacer su propia música.

El mayor error de los padres de Pokko fue darle el tambor. Cuando Pokko sale con su tambor a lo profundo del bosque, hay tanta pero tanta quietud que Pokko decide tocar. Y antes de darse cuenta, se le une una banda de animales—primero el mapache, luego el conejo, después el lobo—y pronto todo el bosque sigue a Pokko. ¿Escuchará la voz de su padre cuando la llame para que regrese a casa?

Pokko y el tambor es un cuento sobre el arte, la persistencia y una familia de ranas que vive bajo un hongo.
