I Am Nefertiti by Annemarie Anang, Natelle Quek
When Nefertiti plays the drums, the band plays as one. 'I am Nefertiti' she says, and she feels ten feet tall.
But when the new music teacher shortens her name to 'Nef', bit by bit, she starts to shrink. Without Nefertiti to keep the beat, the band is in disarray. 'I am Nefertiti!' she whispers to herself.
Drawing on her inner strength and with the support of the other children, they help Miss Potts recognise the importance of honouring Nefertiti's name. Now, when Nefertiti keeps the beat, the music sounds so sweet!
