Book Review - The Meerkat Wars by H S Toshack

Book Review

About the Author

H. S. Toshack has lived and worked as an English teacher and educational consultant in the UK, the Caribbean, Africa, Thailand and the Middle East. He now lives and writes in Portugal...and travels, still.

His Paka Mdogo stories are set in Africa, but they are coloured by his experience of people, and lives lived, in all of those other places; and he intends to take his cat heroine Sheena, in future books, to some of them (perhaps Thailand next).

Book Description
It s all very well helping a young meerkat whos been poisoned by a scorpion. But when you ve made friends with the whole Duwara tribe of meerkats, and you discover that they re at war with the Utongo, you may find yourself involved in that too, even if you re only a little black-and-white cat. And when you realise that the two tribes are fighting because each one believes it lives under The One True Sun, then you may have to undertake a very dangerous journey to help them see things differently. You may have to go through The Gorge.
Sheena, the amazing co-author !!
Book Review
The authors knowledge of how Meerkats live, work and play is well researched, which adds to the story and the belief that you are really living like a Meerkat.  The knowledge of the other types of animals encountered along the adventure is also first class.

Sheena, a poor lost cat, brings the story to life with her adventures, fights and struggles to get back to her human family.  She encounters two fighting tribes of Meerkats, the Duwara tribe and the Utongo tribe.  Sheena realises that both tribes need to believe in the same thing 'One Sun' to end all the fighting, so they can live in peace.  Can she achieve this?

A book to be enjoyed by both young and old as the author brings the sense of humour and honour among the Meerkats alive.  With sketches throughout the book for you to enjoy.
