‘Beware of predators in the guise of friends’
Mungai, a jungle creature of indeterminate origin, happily ambles through life dreaming up scandalous get-rich-quick schemes. On his travels he meets Goa, an equally ruthless and selfish Boa Constrictor. Having explained to her “the usefulness of the lesser species”, and his latest highly profitable master plan, Mungai tempts Goa into joining him in his search for as many unsuspecting creatures as they can muster. Successful in this quest, they set about stripping the rainforest of its valuable assets.
Told through the eyes of animals, the reader is taken on a compelling journey through the jungle; together with a wealth of colourful and enjoyable characters, conspiracies and the unlikely friendships forged between the various species of the animal kingdom.
A timeless tale for children and adults alike
An excerpt from Mungai and the Goa Constrictor
They journeyed on, getting deeper and deeper into the jungle, and then changed tack and veered towards the edge, but not in the direction of the two-legs. They were, in fact, quite far away from them when they eventually managed to track down the mysterious monkey.
They caught a fleeting glimpse of him, just as he caught a glimpse of Hogbog, and watched in awe as he disappeared with unparalleled speed into the branches above.
“Wow!” said Bodger. “Did you see that?” he asked anyone who was listening. “No wonder he’s never been captured.”
“Hogbog,” called Caw-Caw. “You’re on again.”
Hogbog scurried round in circles near the spot where they had last seen him, and within minutes was on the trail again. He forged ahead, sniffing and snuffling after his quarry, refusing to be beaten (after all, he did have a reputation to uphold) until finally, there above him, high in the canopy, sat the Oracle.
Good luck with the Giveaway
