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 Elephants , ivory poachers are killing grown elephants for their tusks and leaving the calves to die. When the authorities fail to turn up new leads, Akimbo sets out to save the elephants by posing as a hunter himself.

McCall Smith grew up in present-day Zimbabwe, and spent many years in Botswana as an adult. His love for Africa comes across very clearly. These short yet exciting books are perfect for the reluctant reader.
