A thrilling retelling of the classic adventure story by H. Rider Haggard, for children ready to tackle longer and more complex stories. Allan Quatermain’s search for a missing aristocrat leads to a heart-stopping African adventure through scorched deserts, frozen mountains and a warring lost tribe. But the greatest dangers of all await at the chilling King Solomon’s mines... Full of action and excitement, skilfully brought to life by colourful, modern illustrations. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
