In a central African animal sanctuary, young Akimbo sees the carcass of a mother elephant rotting in the sun. Hearing that his ranger father rarely catches these killers, Akimbo hatches a secret plan to apprehend these villains himself. But are the dangers too daunting for this aspiring hero?

Born in Zimbabwe, New York Times best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith uses his first-hand knowledge of Africa to connect with his young audience and supply his Akimbo chapter books with vivid details.

    " Such a sweet little series. The character is a charming little boy with a big heart for the animals on the reserve where his dad is a ranger. I need to recommend this to more kids. Same author as the No. 1 Ladies' Detective series. "
