Bestselling novelist Alexander McCall brings the majesty and dangers of Africa to life in these vividly imagined adventures for young readers. Imagine living in the heart of Africa, where the sun rises each morning over blue mountains, and great plains stretch as far as the eye can see. Imagine living in a place where wild animals still roam freely--elephants, lions, crocodiles. Akimbo lives in such a place. But Africa can be as dangerous as it is beautiful . . . In Akimbo and the Snakes, Akimbo can't believe his luck when his father allows him to visit his uncle Peter's snake park. And when a local village calls to report the sighting of a green mamba snake--the rarest and deadliest snake of all--Akimbo hopes to help his uncle catch it for the park. But little does he expect to find himself trapped face-to-face with the deadly reptile. In Akimbo and the Baboons, Akimbo and his cousin, Kosi, are excited to join a scientist who has come to study baboons in the wild. But when a black leopard is seen near their camp, and Akimbo and Kosi get lost in the bush, it will take all the courage the boys can muster--plus some help from an unusual friend--to lead them back to safety.

The author’s colourful and extraordinary life is recounted in Akimbo: A Sow Bug’s Life (Autobiography or part of one). This memoir describes Canadian Kim Parrish’s life through a series of his unusual experiences and situations, including owning pet crocodiles, playing pond hockey, living in Iran, enjoying his lifelong teaching career, and surviving a heart attack and a stroke. He states, “The story is not principally about being a stroke survivor, but it sure has had a big impact on my life!” He had to relearn how to walk, and has rebounded slowly but surely. Kim also tells of finding love and marriage in China, and how he is now splitting his time between Canada’s West Coast (Vancouver) and Beijing, where he devotes much of his time writing. His inspiring journey is a salute to his enduring efforts to beat the odds and live life on his own terms.
