But Ade and Tayo want to play, and after their mothers leave, they run into the dark deep jungle at the edge of the village. Soon their the find themselves on an unexpected adventure. Odo Ere, or the Lake of the Big Snake, seemed to pull them to its mysterious waters like a magnet. Then it happens. They hear the sound -- a sudden splash -- and see rippling rings across the lake. "A snake...a big water snake!" cries Ade. Issac Olaleye's fast-paced story, written with a rhythm that makes it perfect for storytelling, will hold young readers in thrall. Claudia Shepherd captures the sumptuous rain forest setting, providing the perfect atmosphere for this exciting -- and humorous -- picture book.
