Zimani's Drum based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
An excellent retelling of a Malawian Folktale. Two brothers, one blind, travel with their drums hearing rhythms in the world around them. As they walk they hear and fear Lion. The boys seek refuge in a hut of some girls who also have been hearing Lion. Lion does arrive and threaten the children, but the boys outwit the Lion in a contest of bravado by using things the boys had collected during their walk. The illustrations are as delightful as the tale.
