Ten-year-old Akimbo gets to spend several days with his uncle Peter at his east African snake park! His uncle first takes him on a tour of the snake-filled sanctuary. Soon Akimbo learns important facts about snakes and helps his uncle with various tasks from milking cobra venom to feeding constrictors. But when local livestock begin dropping dead, he and his uncle must capture the offending green mamba-a rare and deadly snake.

Professional reviews

"Akimbo is back and is eagerly anticipating an extended visit to his Uncle Peter's snake park. Finally, he is old enough for a working vacation with his favorite uncle! While milking cobras for the venom used in serum to cure snakebites sounds exotic, it pales in comparison to the work that Akimbo is ultimately called upon to do. As Uncle Peter said, experience provides the best way to understand snakes. As narrator of his own work, Smith speaks with a dignified and precise voice. Crisp enunciation flows effortlessly and underscores the engaging details of snake handling and the personalities of puff adders and mambas, both black and green. Smith's pacing is vigorous and moves the action briskly along. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
