An African boy collects scraps of wire to make a galimoto --a toy vehicle. In PW 's words, ``Williams's gentle text and Stock's soft watercolors capture the essence of life in a small African village. Children . . . will warm to this tale of a boy's persistence and not-so-small accomplishment.'' Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
