Publisher Comments:

Mentu has never known Africa. He is an island-born boy. But Grandmother Twi, she has Africa in her blood—and she shares the old magic of her home through songs and stories. One day, a slave ship docks on the shore of the island where Mentu lives. Like Twi, the people inside yearn to return to Africa.  Will old magic help them break their chains and cross the ocean to freedom?  

Certain to inspire for years to come, In the Time of the Drums tells a spellbinding story of strength in slavery times. An essential addition to library and family collections, this arrives just in time for Black History Month.
