Children Ages 6+ • 45 min. • Unabridged • © 1993

When John arrives in Akimbo's village eager to find crocodile eggs, watch a hatch, and tag the baby crocodiles, Akimbo's father has little interest. However, for Akimbo, the chance to accompany John and help with his undertaking is both a dream come true and a dangerous proposition. How could someone as knowledgeable as John have scars from crocodiles? Alexander McCall Smith narrates his own tale with precision and intimacy. His clip is jaunty and his tone low; this challenges the listener to keep up--to catch all the steps for disentangling an angry crocodile from the nets and to hear the full procedure for the night watch at the sandbank. This suspenseful production offers detailed information on crocodiles and will bear multiple listens. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
