Summary

Akimbo loves his life in Africa. He loves living in the great game reserve where his father is ranger. He is able to see all sorts of wonderful animals. But he doesn't see many snakes - they usually slither away when he gets close.

But then his uncle Peter asks if Akimbo would like to visit his snake park, and Akimbo jumps at the chance!

Critic reviews

"A straightforward plot, spare storytelling and avuncular tone create a contemporary chapter book with an old-fashioned feel." ( KIrkus Review)
