Reviewed by:
This is mainly a light reading, children’s chapter book. But it is one that I wanted to read again as soon as I was done reading it. McCall Smith offers us two things we want: a fine story that is set in Africa and that has monkeys and lions. But one of these two things contributes to our collection of stereotypes –of wild animals everywhere.
