5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Ethics and Morality of Ivory Poaching 20 octobre 2005
Par Jon Linden - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In this short children's book, McCall Smith is as usual interested in ethics and morality. The book centers on Akimbo, a child of about 7 or 8 years of age. Akimbo becomes aware that there are people that poach Ivory, by killing elephants illegally and taking the tusks. Akimbo learns this when he and his father, a park ranger come upon a dead elephant and a live calf. Akimbo is bothered greatly by this situation. Not only is he bothered by the dead mother, but also by the calf left behind.

In discussing this with his father, Akimbo discovers that it is very, very difficult for poachers to be caught and brought to justice. He hatches a plan to do just that. His plan is to find out who the poachers are, and get proof of their illegal activity. Then to turn this information over to his father so the poachers can be brought to justice.

In effectuating his plan, Akimbo is exposed to considerable personal danger. Nonetheless, he decides that the unethical behavior of the poachers is worth the risk to his person. The story tells how Akimbo achieves this objective. The book is an excellent story for children and teaches not only ethics and morality, but also something about Africa and elephants and Ivory. It should be considered by all parents trying to show examples of ethical and unethical behavior to their young children. In addition, it shows the concept that one has the choice to act ethically, or to just sit it out and watch. Akimbo chooses the former rather than the later.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Akimbo Versus the Ivory Poachers 28 mai 2008
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Although this book is described as being for the 4-8 year-old group, it seemed to me more like a 7-9 year-old book that might well appeal more to boys than to girls (based on having had two of each in our family).

I was attracted to the book by realizing that the various animal-related stories that Alexander McCall Smith includes in his No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books were among my favorite parts of those books. It occurred to me that the Akimbo books might have such stories in them.

Well, not quite . . . but the series is full of Akimbo learning about wild animals, the threats to animals from people, and deals with the problems through Akimbo's brave deeds. Children like to see themselves playing important roles in the world, and Akimbo and the Elephants is very good for appealing to that desire.

Akimbo's father works as a ranger at a game preserve in Africa where some near-by villagers have been killing elephants to take the tusks to sell to ivory carvers. Akimbo decides that he will put a stop to this practice, and his adventures provide for a good story that will keep your attention . . . even if you are well over the age of 9.

The book is nicely illustrated which adds to the realism of the story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 African Adventure for Children 25 janvier 2006
Par Virginia Allain - Publié sur
Format: Relié
"Now, in his first books for children to be published in the U.S., he takes readers deep into the heart of Africa, where the grass grows taller than a man, and where lions and great elephants still roam. There, ten-year-old Akimbo lives with his father on the edge of a game reserve. Akimbo loves to join his father when he patrols the reserve because there is always something exciting to see. But when it comes to wild animals, excitement can also mean danger..." (description from publisher's website)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Rating Akimbo and the Elephants 10 juin 2008
Par Virginia Pocket - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I think you should read this book because it is about a boy named Akimbo who lives in Africa. His mission is to save a lot of elephants. Akimbo travels 35 miles to prevent an entire herd of elephants from being shot solely for their ivory tusks. Ultimately, he rescues the elephants by tricking the poachers into the hands of the rangers. I personally think you should read this book because it is a fun and an easy to read book. It keeps you in suspense and gives you a sense of hope for our future.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lovely Story for Boys and Girls 7 octobre 2005
Par Maggie L. - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My 6 year old enjoyed this chapter book so much that we had to read the whole book in one sitting. Truth be told, I would have finished it that evening anyhow. This is a great story about a little boy who takes great personal risks to save elephants from poachers. Like other McCall-Smith books, it is filled with local culture and really gives one the feeling of being there...enjoy....
