Pokko has a history of getting REALLY enthusiastic about her hobbies, and her parents just keep encouraging her…until things get out of hand, when Pokko gets a drum. This book is hilarious, with wonderfully dry humor and wit. The gorgeous storybook illustrations take us through Pokko’s epic and unexpected adventures with her new drum, getting sillier and more surprising as it goes!
