Ossiri and the Bala Mengro
by Richard O’Neill (Author), Katharine Quarmby (Author), and Hannah Tolson (Illustrator)

Booktalk: 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?
