Little Ngiri is the smallest Warthog in Africa. Tired of being teased by his bigger brothers and sisters, he wishes things could be different. When Old Nyumbu the Wilderbeest gives Ngiri a set of magic drums, he is sure his wish is about to come true. But all the animals of the jungle are in for a BIG surprise as Ngiri's wish is granted in a most unexpected way.

Jungle Drums is a gloriously illustrated storybook, with a fun puzzle element, set in the African jungle.

Graeme Base, the creator of the international bestsellers Animalia and The Waterhole, brings us a magical and joyous fable that children will enjoy reading again and again.
