Folk singer Pete Seeger's adaptation of the South African folktale Abiyoyo, first recorded in 1956, now comes with a sing-along CD (see Children's Audio, Sept. 10) in honor of the book's 15th anniversary. Michael Hays's artwork depicts the global villagers who drive a magician and his ukulele-strumming son to the edge of town only to invite them back when they make Abiyoyo the giant disappear. Seeger partners with Paul DuBois Jacobs to profile the same town 30 years later in Abiyoyo Returns, also illus. by Hays. Here, the father-son team is drafted to bring back Abiyoyo; they believe the giant alone can help them in their efforts to build a dam and save their town. (Oct.)
