A child, a wild animal - and a life-changing encounter.

An exciting new range of books in which children find solutions to problems through conservation rather than killing. On his way home from a fishing trip Pedru is attacked by a lion who takes his arm.

As Pedru gradually adapts to his altered circumstances, at home and at school, he vows to get his revenge.

So when his father, the finest hunter in the village, agrees to hunt the lion with him, Pedru is thrilled.

But father and son track and kill the wrong lion - and find it's wearing a collar.

Pedru's feelings change when he returns the collar to the Madune Carnivore Research Unit and the scientists there help him see his lion in a different light.

With this new understanding he devotes himself to the study of lion behaviour, inspired by the animals' resilience and the possibilities their careful management opens up for his country's future in the form of tourism.
