Safari Journal

Hudson Talbott. Harcourt Children's Books, $18 (64pp) ISBN 978-0-15-216393-8

Along the lines of his Amazon Diary, Hudson Talbott's Safari Journal poses as the notebook of a 12-year-old boy who accompanies his fashionista aunt on a photo shoot to Kenya. Carey's jottings, snapshots and drawings describe encounters with the Maasai, wildlife and a ring of poachers.
