It is an exciting story with so many aspects of the african culture spread through it. The first three minutes of the story is very scaryso I would skip that part and I would suggest that you skip it too! The rest of the story is very good.
There isn't another book that I have listened to that compares with this one.
When the giraffe helped the girl escape from the snake.
I really felt for the characters. I held my breathe several times during the story. It kept me interested all the way through
I'm having a wonderful priceless time reading this book with my 9yr son. Beautiful language and a well written story combine to make this a memorable book. Part mystery, part fantasy, part adventure, this story will appeal to many different types of readers. The imagery that St. John uses makes my son and I feel as if we're both was actually in Africa ourselves. Can't wait to discuss this book at his school's book club. Can't wait to ready more books by Lauren St John.
My kids requested to listen to this book twice and now are on the print version. Well written and well read. We have recommended this audiobook to all our friends.
