"Farook’s wild tales set on Serendib (Sri Lanka) conjure up endangered nature, cruel criminals and engaging child heroes. Here, Selvi has developed a bond with Lokka, a rare mountain leopard ― but big cats are valuable to poachers and someone has discovered Selvi’s secret. Can she protect Lokka ― or will someone betray her? Edge-of-your-seat excitement"-Sally Morris, The Daily Mail

"...Set, like her previous novels, in Sri Lanka, this is a tale for those who crave animal adventures such as those of Lauren St John and Katherine Rundell. The spirited Selvi befriends a wild leopard, but poachers see only its price tag. She must find a way to protect the “true king of the mountains”. [The] author’s passion for the natural world currently under threat makes their book outstanding" -Amanda Craig, The New Statesman

From the author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant comes another brilliant escapade. The third thrilling adventure set in a fictional Sri Lanka is jam-packed with peril, poachers and an endangered leopard!

Selvi is a wild child who loves climbing in the beautiful mountains behind her home. She is often joined by Lokka, a leopard with a beautiful coat and huge golden eyes. When hunters come for Lokka, Selvi is determined to fight.

But what can she do against such powerful enemies? Turn to her friends, of course! Now they just need the perfect plan...
