The biggest mistake Pokko’s parents ever made was giving her the drum. When Pokko takes the drum deep into the forest it is so quiet, so very quiet that Pokko decides to play. And before she knows it she is joined by a band of animals –first the raccoon, then the rabbit, then the wolf–and soon the entire forest is following her. Will Pokko hear her father’s voice when he calls her home?
Pokko and the Drum
is a story about art, persistence, and a family of frogs living in a mushroom.
