This book follows Gannon and Wyatt's journals sharing facts about Africa and producing an exciting story. They find themselves saying goodbye to their parents and going on an expedition to save a mama lion and capture a poacher. They meet two men that help them on their expedition. One man is a guide and has a lot of experience in the land; the second man is a native African who is the last of his tribe. These two brave boys run into some troubles like running out of food and have to eat a snake, mistaking a mossy log for a crocodile, and put themselves in danger.
I liked this book very much. It has many surprises. I learned many things about animals and Africa. It was a very adventurous story. I felt like I was in the book going on the safari with them. The book has a little violence near the end. That part got me scared but it was so exciting that I could barely close the book.
I still think the book could be improved. They could tell more about the weather, how the boys felt, and some more facts about poaching.
I think both girls and boys would enjoy this book very much. I’d suggest this book for kids 9 and up.
