Akimbo and the Lionsby Alexander Mccall Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Ten-year-old Akimbo lives on a game preserve in Africa. His father is the head ranger, and Akimbo is eager to help him whenever he can--even if it means getting into some pretty dangerous situations.
In Akimbo and the Lions, Akimbo helps his father set a trap for a lioness that has been attacking cattle on nearby farms. But when the lion they catch turns out to be a cub, Akimbo must find a way to care for the young lion until it's old enough to be released in the wild.
Three exciting Akimbo adventures from the bestselling adult author. They are full of the sights, sounds and smells of Africa and tell of thrillingly dangerous animals. The beautiful new covers are by acclaimed artist, Peter Bailey, and perfectly reflect the African setting. Readership level: 7-9yrs.
