Mpole is a 12 year old African elephant who has been forced to leave the Herd. He must now prove himself by passing The Seven Tests (Mitihani Saba) so that he can become Accepted as a young male. Mpole's problem, however is that he does things gradually...and that includes thinking. How can he possibly succeed? With the help of Sheena, perhaps - the clever (and cheeky) little black and white cat who has sneaked back to Baragandiri National Park with the Allen family on their second safari there. But a test much bigger the Mitihani Saba awaits them...

From the Author:

Just to let you know that although the 'Paka Mdogo' books form a series, they are stand-alone reads. Yes, they have the same central character (Sheena - aka Paka Mdogo, a cat for all seasons) and some of the other characters re-appear, but the stories are wholly independent.

They're best read, nevertheless, in the order in which they were written - 'Paka Mdogo' first, 'The Meerkat Wars' last.

I hope you enjoy reading the books half as much as I enjoyed writing them...

Review:

The 'Paka Mdogo' series: 'These charming stories are reminiscent of Kipling's 'Jungle Book' - sometimes allegorical, always entertaining, beautifully packaged. Another place, another culture, but young children will delight in having the stories read to them, and older children will find them a perfect read.' Paul Norman, Books Monthly, May 2011

'All three 'Paka Mdogo' stories are charming. The moral lessons are subtly presented, deftly handled. The animals have some very human concerns, but in the end they are animals, still.

Author Toshack is working on further books for this series. An increasingly long line of children can hardly wait.' Sienna Powers, January Magazine, September 2011
