Akimbo and the Elephants
From his father, Akimbo learns to love animals and passes up no opportunity to protect them from poachers and sometimes from each other. In the first adventure, Akimbo learns about poachers who kill elephants for their tusks. In the tradition of the Hardy Boys, he takes matters into his own hands, breaks a few family rules and hunts the poachers himself. While readers will want to know which country Akimbo calls home and will question the stereotyped sex roles, they will cheer for the good-hearted boy as he bravely faces each danger in his quest to protect his beloved animals.
