The man from Frandango is coming to pay a visit. He 'bingles and bangles and bounces' and brings music and dance wherever he goes. Baboons play on bassoons, kangaroos hop and bounce and dinosaurs join in the din. They all 'tingle and tongle and tangle' until dawn. But the man from Fandango appears only once every 500 years, 'so you'd better be home when he calls'.

All the mystery, intrigue and magic of this character is brought to life through Mahy's witty rhyming word play and Dunbar's exuberant illustrations. Another hit from this winning combination.
