    1. Akimbo-kirjat ovat helppolukuinen täysosuma eläimistä ja jännittävistä luontoseikkailuista kiinnostuneille lapsille. Olisin itse ollut kakarana näistä ihan liekeissä. Akimbo ja käärmeet kertoo Akimbon kesälomasta hänen setänsä johtamalla käärmetarhalla. Käärmeet ovat Akimbosta kiehtovia, mutta hieman pelottavia. Tarhalla Akimbo oppii paljon käärmeistä ja saa ruokkia tarhan hoidokkeja liskoilla, kaneilla ja jyrsijöillä sekä auttaa kobran myrkyn lypsämisessä.Opit tulevat [...]


    2. Olipas jännittävä! Tämä kirja sai todella kiinnostumaan käärmeistä. :) Teksti ei kuitenkaan tuntunut kovin helppolukuiselta, joten suosittelen suht varmoille lukijoille.


    3. Initially, I was not sure whether I would enjoy reading this book as I am not a great fan of snakes. However, once I started reading it, I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. This is a brilliant, fun and educational book to read. The book tells the story of Akimbo and the adventurous trip he experiences when he visits his Uncle’s Snake Park in Africa. Having always loved snakes, Akimbo could not wait to spend his summer holiday working with his Uncle. To Akimbo, this was not work – he was [...]


    4. Very much better than the "young Precious" stories and quite a lot better than the run of McCall Smith's children's books that I've read. Google doesn't seem to recognise Akimbo as a name, only the phrase "arms akimbo", but then Google may not speak African languages. I seem to have missed any reference to an actual country in which the book is set, too.As a child I was fascinated by snakes and other reptiles, just like the protagonist. This very short book is full of solid information about how [...]


    5. We are 4 for 4! What will I do when we finish the final book. My 4 and 6 year olds are hooked! This was a great story that held their suspense at the end.even mine! It had a great ending. AMS has done it once again!


    6. These are great fun and I would imagine most boys (and men) and some girls would envy the adventurous and competent Akimbo.



    7. Akimbo jumps at a chance to visit his Uncle Peter’s snake park. During his stay, he learns how to feed the less dangerous snakes. He watches in fascination as Uncle Peter and his assistants “milk” the venomous ones. The park has one empty case set up for a green mamba, the most deadly snake in Africa. Much to Akimbo’s delight, there is a mamba sighting while he’s at the park. As Uncle Peter and Akimbo hunt for the green snake amongst the dense green foliage, Akimbo’s sharp eyes pick [...]


    8. Naisten etsivätoimistostaan paremmin tutun Alexander McCall Smithin "Akimbo ja käärmeet" (Otava, 2010) jatkaa lapsille suunnattua kirjasarjaa, jossa pieni afrikkalaispoika tutustuu jälleen Afrikan luontoon ja villieläimiin. Nopealukuisessa tarinassa on mukana on sopivasti jännitystä ja samalla sitä lukiessa oppii vähäsen eläimistä. Kertakaikkisen mainiota luettavaa alakoulun pienemmille oppilaille!


    9. I picked this up because I'm a fan of the author's adult series The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. This was a very exciting read, with the threat of being fatally bitten by a snake. The main character spends a week or so with his uncle who manages a snake park. This is a great book for kids who like snakes and even for those of us who don't. There's also an appendix of snake facts at the back for those who want to know more after finishing the story.


    10. I took this to a school to do a book talk, and I was amazed at how excited they were about the snakes. Unfortunately I wasn't aware and this was the advanced reader class and so the book was WAY too easy, but the kids still thought the story sounded interesting. They all wanted to know all about snakes, and since I like snakes we had quite the discussion.


    11. Täydellinen vinkkauskirja. Käännös kömpelömpi kuin muistin, mutta kun toiminta alkaa, sekään ei haitannut. Hyvä yhdistelmä tietoa, eläinsuojelua, erilaista Afrikka-kuvaa ja jännitystä. si :).



    12. My boys enjoyed (5 and 7) enjoyed listening to this book. They sat on the edge of their seats the whole time. If you have a boy that love adventure and animals this is a fun read!


    13. Super cute and much more plausible than the last one I read. Loved learning more about Africa and even about snakes (though I still do no want one in the house much to my son's chagrin).


    14. The grandkids and I really liked this book. We thought it was very exciting and learned facts about snakes that we did not know before. Next book is The Five Lost Aunts of Harriet Bean.


    15. Written by the man who brought adults the Ladies Number 1 Detective Agency, this is a series of kids books (mid to late grammar school) also set in Africa--very well done--Akimbo is a keeper





    16. It's Alexander McCall Smith. So it's appropriate for young readers but not condescending or silly. It's information without being preachy.
