Book Review: Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger
My book review is about a book called Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger. It is about a boy and his father. The father had a magic wand and the boy had a ukulele. The other people didn’t like them. The father made too many practical jokes and the boy annoyed people. The people made them live at the edge of town. Then one day a shabby giant name Abiyoyo was looming over the horizon. “Run for your lives!” the people said. The boy and his father had an idea. They went to the giant and the boy started playing “A-bi-yo-yo-bi-yo-yo-yo-yo” with his ukulele. Abiyoyo was so happy that he started dancing. Suddenly he fell in a great heap. With a flick of his magic wand, the father made Abiyoyo disappear. “Yay!” the townspeople said. “Come back to town.”
I like this book because it is funny. The repetitive “A-bi-yo-yo” song makes me happy, and the shabby, ragged drawing of the giant as he dances is just as it should be.
