Ossiri and the Bala Mengro Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Hannah Tolson

Part of the Child's Play Library series


A Traveller girl creates her own musical instrument from a willow branch and lots of recycled objects.

She plays it enthusiastically, but it sounds terrible!

Ignoring warnings not to awaken the ogre in the hills, Ossiri goes there to practise playing her instrument.

Will she wake the ogre, and will it appreciate her playing?

Told by a Romani storyteller and a picture book author, this original tale offers a fascinating insight into Travelling lifestyles and cultures.
