The Akimbo Adventures Summary

The Akimbo Adventures (Akimbo) by Alexander McCall Smith

Three classic adventure tales from the bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, now together in paperback for the first time.

Imagine living in the heart of Africa. Imagine living in a place where the sun rises every morning over blue mountains.

Akimbo and his parents live on the edge of an African game reserve. It's his father's task to protect the thousands of amazing animals who make it their home, and wildlife-loving Akimbo dreams of helping him. In these three adventures, Akimbo protects elephants from poachers, saves a lion cub from a trap, and rescues a man from a crocodile!

This 3-in-1 collection contains Akimbo and the Elephants, Akimbo and the Lions and Akimbo and the Crocodile Man.

Fans of The Jungle Book and the Just So Stories will love these stories of wild animals and thrilling adventures.
