Illustrated by Michael Hays. New York: Macmillan Publishing Company. If it hasn't happened by intermission, the braver children make their way to the stage with scraps of paper on which one word is scrawled: ''Abiyoyo,'' meaning Mr. Seeger's song about a mischievous little boy and his equally mischievous father, and of their triumph. Though the song is available on a number of records, it is a long time between face-to-face tellings.

Outcasts become heroes in this picture book adaptation of a South African lullaby and folk story. No one wants to hear the little boy play his ukelele anymore Clink, clunk, clonk. And no one wants to watch his father make things disappear Until the day the fearsome giant Abiyoyo suddenly appears in town, and all the townspeople run for their lives and the lives of their children!
Nothing can stop the terrible giant Abiyoyo, nothing, that is, except the enchanting sound of the ukelele and the mysterious power of the magic wand. Pete Seeger is a national treasure, arguably the most influential figure in American folk music as well as an important advocate of social causes. He lives in Beacon, New York. Michael Hays has illustrated several picture books, including the sequel to Abiyoyo, Abiyoyo Returns.
He lives in Chicago, Illinois. New York Times Book Review Told in the familiar Seeger style, with brief musical phrases of the one-word song incorporated in the text and printed complete at the end, and with illustrations full of light and color, this rendering of a South African tale is a pleasure.
