In my opinion, this is a good informational book. It is in the form of a story but that makes the information easier and more fun to read. I really liked how well the book was written. The writing throughout the book is very well organized and clear which allows the reader a clear path to understanding the information. The facts are interesting and very useful.
I also really liked the illustrations throughout this book. Chapter books can often times be difficult to follow along with but the illustrations give the reader another source for information. Meaning that, if the reader does not fully comprehend what is going on in the book they can look at the illustrations to get a better idea.
The main focus of this book is to learn about lions. ( )

Jack and Annie are sent to Africa to solve yet another riddle. But once they solve the riddle they have to also sneak past a pride of lions.
I like this book because it keeps the reader intrigued the whole time.
I would have an older elementary child read it due to the length and the reading level.
