Rookie Book Club Akimbo and the Elephants by Alexander McCall Smith

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Kids in grades 1-3 are welcome to our discussion of Akimbo and the Elephants by Alexander McCall Smith. Copies will be available at the library.

Summary: 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.

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.
