Action, adventure, humour, deceit, friendship and environmental awareness – all in one!
Mungai, a jungle creature of indeterminate origin, creates a cunning master plan allowing him to find ways of passing through life without too much cost to himself and as little effort as possible and at the expense of others not as strong-minded as he is.
He goes all out to achieve his objectives, regardless of the consequences, as he sets out to destroy the rainforest for personal gain.
On his travels Mungai encounters an equally ruthless and selfish creature, a boa constrictor called Goa, and together they go in search of innocents to use to implement their designs.
They subsequently meet, befriend and manage to convince all manner of creatures to join them in their venture with promises of great rewards in return for small labours. The creatures believe their efforts to be beneficial to the environment and look forward to the promised bounty. Before too long some notice their hard work continues but the rewards are not forthcoming and they begin to realise that what they are involved in is not good for anyone.
Dissatisfaction burgeons and rebellion is imminent.
Mungai finds out, all too late, that those he shamelessly inveigled into his plans are not so naive as he first thought and the tables are turned.
The perpetrators become the victims as Operation Equinox is devised and executed.
‘Beware of predators in the guise of friends’

Paperback Release of Mungai and the Goa Constrictor
Sometimes an electronic copy of a book is just not enough! We may want something tangible and durable. Something we can keep on our bookshelves at home and something we can lend to our friends and family, simply by handing it over. For these reasons Mungai and the Goa Constrictor has also been released in paperback – expressly for those who prefer not to be bound by the limitations of technology.
