Gundu and Keeri Humongoose are normal mongooses. They are hasty, they chatter with chirps or clicks, they eat rats… But then they do something that Do-First-Think-Later animals do not. They take a decision! To move out of the jungle! And so begins their adventure into the unknown… filled with danger from two-legged creatures. Funny and quirky, the story is sprinkled with concerns about the environment, and also with little-known mongoose traits that author Zai Whitaker knows well – she’s had them as pets!
