Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A banza is a little banjo-and this one has magical powers. A goat and a tiger seek refuge in the same cave. The tiger leaves the goat a banza, and when faced with ten hungry tigers the goat sings a brave song to frighten them away. This humorous folk tale is retold and matched with full color illustrations that depict the flora and fauna of the island. A Reading Rainbow Book.
