Akimbo is excited to have his cousin, Kosi, visit him on the game reserve
where he lives. And when a visiting scientist invites the boys to join her
when she studies a pack of baboons, they can't wait to assist her in the
bush. The baboon pack they find are fun to observe, but when a black
leopard threatens the pack--and the scientist--Akimbo and Kosi are
reminded that danger is ever present in the African bush. Alexander
McCall Smith takes young readers on a vicarious safari to his beloved
Africa in this perfect first chapter book, beautifully brought to life with
illustrations by LeUyen Pham.
