How does a curious cheetah cub explore the startling wilderness of the Serengeti Plains without his mother’s protection? Mugambi, whose name means brave explorer in Swahili, discovers danger in this exciting, unfamiliar world as he leads his young sisters from the safety of their den to search for their mother. Richly detailed illustrations framed by borders of beautiful nature-inspired patterns typically found in the Serengeti region depict this fascinating endangered animal in its natural habitat.
