Lions and Zebras and Elephants…Oh My!


Children have a natural fascination with animals. Now take this fascination a step closer to reality, and you have an engaging tale in the picturesque setting of Africa.


Mac, Sam, and several other family and friends embark on a trip to Africa as part of their camping treat, to learn about various animals living in this country. Several up close encounters with snakes, hyenas, and elephants, delight and scare them all at the same time. At one point the action takes a dangerous turn when their guide is bit by a black mamba and it’s up to Max and Sam to get help.


This book along with the rest of the series is one big mystery puzzle. In each book one mysterious letter appears in a map, which will come to a head at one point in an upcoming book. Middle grade readers will enjoy the humor, adventures, and educational tidbits found in each story. Miss Berry’s talent in reaching out to this target audience is apparent. The story is easy to read, easy to understand, and the added mystery is the compelling force.


It was a fast and great read and educational even for me. I found out that the stripes on a zebra help to make them less visible to their predator while on a run. So even big kids will discover new things.
