'This delightful tale for children reveals how the young Precious became the crafty and intuitive private investigator we all know and love!' – Western Morning News

Precious Ramotswe is on holiday, staying with her Aunty Bee at safari camp deep in the Botswana countryside, and is excited when a new lion arrives. Not just any lion but an actor-lion called Teddy with his own film crew! But when the four-legged movie star goes missing the camp is thrown into confusion. Can the young detective and her resourceful new friend Khumo solve the mystery and find out where Teddy has gone? The search plunges the two young sleuths deep into the jungle. As they dodge the hippos and crocs they will need all their bravery and cleverness to catch their prize.

Find out if they succeed as Alexander McCall Smith tells us the story of Precious and the Mystery of the Missing Lion.
