Kimba Summary


Kimba by Geoffrey Malone

Born among the rocks of M'goma Hill, Kimba is nurtured by his mother, fierce, tender Sabba. She teaches him the ways of the plains - the merciless hunt for food, the endless dangers from hyenas, leopards, crocodiles and rival lions. But when strange lions wrestle the pride away from his sire, Black Mane, Kimba must flee for his life, to face the struggle for survival alone. Slowly, painfully, he grows fiercer and stronger: ready at last to challenge for leadership of his old pride and to confront lions greatest enemy - Man.

About Geoffrey Malone


Geoffrey Malone spent his early life in Africa and did not receive any formal schooling until the age of eleven. He later spent sixteen years as a soldier, then left the UK for Toronto, where he joined a Canadian advertising agency. An encounter with a colony of beavers in the Ontario wilderness during his stay in Canada, led to his first book - Brunner. He returned to Britain determined to write for children. He has now had eight books published, most of which are about wild animals. They are all closely observed and describe the struggle for survival among differing species, in today's man-dominated world. He won the (prestigious) French Children's Book of the Year, TamTam Prize, for Torn Ear, the story of a fox. This was followed soon afterwards by the award of the, Prix d' Enfants et Grand-Parents Europeen. In England, he was shortlisted for the 2001 Stockton Children's Book of the Year, with Elephant Ben, a story about ivory poaching. His subjects have included badger baiting in England; the slaughter of Indian tigers, and life inside a wolf pack, in Wyoming, USA. His latest book, Dead Boys' Club, sees a return to Africa and a vivid description of the horrors of modern day slavery, as a Child Soldier.
