A detective in the wild

Young Precious gets a very special treat. She gets a trip to visit her Aunty Bee at a safari camp. While there she makes a new friend, a boy named Khumo, and meets an actor-lion named Teddy, who is starring in a film. When Teddy disappears, Khumo and Precious will brave hippos and crocodiles as they search for the missing lion.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The author’s detailed storytelling skills take readers right into the lush Okavango Delta. This easy chapter book is great for cross-curricular projects on Botswana or safari animals…A must-have title that exemplifies diversity in fiction.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A compact but entertaining mystery full of fascinating details.”


  • “The straightforward plot, easy vocabulary, and compelling setting make this a perfect step up from early chapter books. That McCall Smith brings a great sense of fun to his prose heightens the appeal…Precious’ keen sense of right and wrong will inspire readers; her powers of observation may inspire budding detectives.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Adjoa Andoh has lovely vocal quality and an interesting accent that is perfect for the narratives about a girl who lives in Botswana. There are many interesting facts and words, as well as exciting adventures: Precious encounters a cranky hippo, a trained lion, and even saves a man’s life. Andoh’s character voices are less believable than the narrative, not because of the Botswana accent but because her voice becomes high and forced. However, her hippo imitation is delightful. Listeners will miss the readers’ guide and recipe included in the print version.”
