Charles Waverly and the Deadly African Safari

Length: 120 pages1 hour


1911. East Africa. The great golden age of the safari, when men came from all around the world to Africa for the opportunity to shoot animals in the wild.

Unfortunately, Charles Waverly-Alcott hates hunting.

Charles would rather stay at home and read a good book, but his father, Sir Edmund, a great huntsman, has pulled Charles from school in England to go on at hunt in Africa. Charles can’t understand why, as his father barely tolerates his presence on good days. He just knows the whole venture is bound to leave his father disappointed with him yet again.

Without warning, the merely annoying turns deadly, forcing Charles on an unexpected adventure across the mystical African wilderness.

With lives in the balance, Charles fears he will fail. But with a little magic on his side, he just might make it-- if the lions don’t get him first.

Charles Waverly and the Deadly African Safari is a fantasy-adventure for the whole family.
