The story, told with bursts of song, concerns a Big City group in a gaudy truck which gets stuck in a “nowhere” of Africa. The locals not only provide help and hospitality but also show they are no mean musicians themselves. Then the fun starts, food is cooked, and it’s time for the concert. “Bushbaby, shake that calabash-thing!” In an African-style, under gnarled, twisting branches, the wild party begins. Genuinely African creatures with suitable musical instruments. A great, read-aloud picture book.
