Wood-Hoopoe Willie
Virginia Kroll
This wonderful tale is about Willie—a boy who taps, drums or thumps to express the music he feels inside. Willie dreams of playing the African instruments of his ancestors that his Grandpa describes: guedras, ecasas, atumpan and dundun drums. Readers will be captivated by Willie's spirit and will delight in his success. Wood-Hoopoe Willie will not only entertain, but enrich readers with the beauty of a culture. Katherine Roundtree's exquisite illustrations add tremendous warmth to this story.
