Pokko and the Drum by Matthew Forsythe is a delightfully-illustrated picture book about creativity, stick-to-itiveness, and a tiny frog who dares to beat to her own drum.

Children will love following this family of frogs who live in a mushroom and the adventures that Pokko finds as she travels through the emerald forest that surrounds them.

When Pokko's parent give her a drum it has a ripple effect in the forest. After being asked to take the drum outside since she is making too much noise, Pokko travels deep into the quiet of the emerald forest.

But it is too quiet! Tapping her drum to keep herself company, she is soon joined by a ragtag band of animals -- first a raccoon, then a rabbit, next a wolf, and before she knows it, the entire forest has started to follow Pokko and her drum.

But will Pokko hear her father calling out to her through all of her music-making? And what will happen when her parents join the ruckus?

Celebrating the joys of community and the spirit of individuality, this witty and whimsical story will delight both kids and adults.
