One night while singing lullabies, Pete was begged byhis children for a story instead. As a compromise, he wrote this story-song based on an old South African folk tale to quiet them. We begin with a boy and his father who are banished because folks find them to be nuisances. However, one day a fearsome giant, Abiyoyo, suddenly appears in the village, and all the townspeople run for their lives -- and the lives of their children! Nothing can stop the terrible giant, nothing, that is, except for a pair of misfit rejects.
