Review:
In this fictional account of Rebecca Mayhew, a naturalist who is tracking animals through Africa in 1924, her journal entries give wonderfully insightful details about her adventure. In addition to the fascinating facts about the animals she finds on her journey, this book is packed with photographs and illustrations, as well as maps of the country, so readers can follow Rebecca's trail. At the end of the book there are cut outs of each of the animals, which can be put together and arranged on the included display to create an African safari diorama.
