Ten-year-old Akimbo lives on a game preserve in Africa. His father is the head ranger, and Akimbo is eager to help him whenever he can—even if it means getting into some pretty dangerous situations.

In Akimbo and the Lions, Akimbo helps his father set a trap for a lioness that has been attacking cattle on nearby farms. But when the lion they catch turns out to be a cub, Akimbo must find a way to care for the young lion until it's old enough to be released in the wild.

We stumbled upon this series at the library and my son just loves it! After reading the first in the series, he begged me to buy all four books...and he never begs for books. I appreciate books that can engage kids, while touching on global issues.
