Abstract:

Akimbo has always wanted to visit his uncle Peter's snake park. So when his father agrees to let him spend a school holiday there, Akimbo can hardly believe his luck. Uncle Peter lets Akimbo handle some of the less dangerous snakes, and once he even gets to hold the jar when Uncle Peter milks venom from a cobra! Of all the snakes Akimbo learns about, the green mamba is the rarest - and the deadliest. So when a local village calls to report a mamba sighting, Akimbo and his uncle hope to catch the snake and take it back to the park. What Akimbo doesn't bargain for is finding himself face to face with the most dangerous of reptiles.
