Tired of being teased by his bigger brothers and sisters, he wishes things could be different.

But all the animals of the jungle are in for a BIG surprise as Ngiri's wish is granted in a most unexpected way.


Audible Editor Reviews

Old Nyumbu, a wise wildebeest, promises Little Ngiri, the smallest warthog in Africa, that banging on a magical drum will keep the other animals from making fun of him. It does, but in a wholly surprising way. Graeme Base, the best-selling author who seems to have claimed or been short-listed for every honor that can be bestowed on Australian children’s book writers, performs his entertaining fable of the importance of appreciating and celebrating our differences, rather than letting them cause fear or inspire bullying. The performance includes a vibrant, jungle-themed soundtrack.


What the Critics Say

"Jungle Drums has a fable-like subtext about self-acceptance and the dangers of trying too hard to fit in." (Sydney Morning Herald)
