An Excerpt

The day was just beginning at the safari camp. Andrew had already finished his breakfast and had come back to the tent to get his camera. He closed the zipper on the front of the tent and tied it carefully. He did not leave any sweets inside. The baboons liked to hunt for sweets and could undo the zippers if they were not tied properly.

Andrew stood very still and listened . . . and then he heard them . . . “Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh, ooh.”
