Remember Little Chimbu who lived in a round house made of palm-leaves, at the foot of a very tall mountain on a big island called New Guinea? Because it is always warm where Little Chimbu lives, he wears a small grass skirt. He has lots of brothers and sisters who make him cross so he finds a Kokomo Bird to be his friend. When his new friend disappears, Little Chimbu sets out to find him. On the way he has some amazing adventures with a kind Lady Crocodile, an angry Cassowary, and a sleepy Kapul. Finally Little Chimbu does catch up with the Kokomo Bird only to get a big surprise.
