The village of Kiwanda is experiencing a famine. All villagers have to go to Kiometasaba to collect their rations. The journey to Kiometassaba using the long route is not normally dangerous, but in this time of famine, the villagers encounter a lion attacking prey. Tunda and Zamaradi, the children of Mziwanda and Makufini, are firsthand witnesses. As if that is not enough adventure, Tunda and Zamaradi must return to Kiwanda using the shorter route through the dense forest and wild animals. They have to hurry because they have learned their parents may be in danger back at home. Will they reach Kiwanda in time to save their parents? How will they survive in a forest where villagers fear to tread? 

"One of the best works for children by this prolific and talented author. Thrilling." Abdullah Saiwaad, Children's Book Editor
