Pokko and the Drum

Matthew Forsythe (CA)

Regular price $23.99


Parents beware, you are not the hero of this story. Pokko the Frog is banished from the house with her drum so her parents might find a little peace and quiet. Pokko soon finds a forest full of merry musicians to join her, and once they follow her home, Mom and Dad learn a valuable lesson about marching to the beat of one's own drum. -PD

From E.B. White Read Aloud honor artist Matthew Forsythe comes an “extraordinary” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) picture book about a magical drum, an emerald forest, and the little frog who dares to make her own music.

The biggest mistake Pokko’s parents ever made was giving her the drum. When Pokko takes the drum deep into the forest it is so quiet, so very quiet that Pokko decides to play. And before she knows it she is joined by a band of animals —first the raccoon, then the rabbit, then the wolf—and soon the entire forest is following her. Will Pokko hear her father’s voice when he calls her home?

Pokko and the Drum is a story about art, persistence, and a family of frogs living in a mushroom.
