Animal Rescue. Scholastic Australia, 2012. ISBN 9781741698497.
Leo is an unusual young boy who can talk to animals. This makes him the perfect friend for Moz, who along with her Gran, is dedicated to saving wildlife. On this adventure their mission is to vaccinate endangered gorillas from the flu. It is a dangerous trip because they can't be sure the gorillas will be welcoming and the poachers don't want anyone interfering with their plans.
This is a simple adventure story for the pre teen complete with exciting inventions and gadgetry. There are some topical environmental messages included giving the book an educational angle.
