I really enjoyed this true account of a little Jack Russell Terrier, Bulu, who found himself adopted by a retired English couple living in the African bush. Bulu's antics were heart-warming, funny, courageous, and down right cute. He was full of natural smarts about living in the bush, yet was not afraid to take on some of its fiercest natives: lions, crocodiles, elephants, hippos, poachers, and the like. On numerous occasions he saved the life of his owners by giving them advanced warning of approaching danger. The most touching parts of the book, however, deal with Bulu's kind, gentle, nurturing personality. "He big brother to baby animals," as one character said. Bulu adopted and helped rehabilitate orphaned vervet monkeys, a baboon, 2 warthogs, a bushbuck, several elephants, and on and on. Bulu led a full and happy life, while teaching many people (and animals) valuable lessons along the way. Truly a heartwarming story for animal lovers of all ages.
