The Last Leopard and the Elephant's Tale More African Adventures by Lauren St. John, David Dean

The adventures of Martine and her magical white giraffe continue in THE LAST LEOPARD and THE ELEPHANT'S TALE, as Martine races against time to save the world's rarest leopard, and uncovers a terrible plot deep in the Namibian desert. Join Martine and her magical giraffe, Jemmy, in two more heart-warming adventures. In The Last Leopard, an accident sends Martine and Ben on a journey to the Matabo Hills in Zimbabwe where they must race against time to save the world's rarest leopard - and each other. And In The Elephant's Tale, Martine and Ben travel to the Namibian desert where they uncover a terrible plot. These are books full of charm and atmosphere and stunning African landscapes, which will enchant animal lovers everywhere.


'[These books] are also wonderfully refreshing in their celebration of Africa - its people, culture and resources... Equally delightful is a capable, adventurous, identifiable and compelling female lead character. There is much to be celebrated here'

'St John brings Africa to vivid life in this tale of a young girl sent to a new life'
