When Jackie Roads, a British girl living in Kenya with her family, finds an ill animal called a bushbaby, she adopts him, calls him Murphy, and nurses him back to health. Murphy, Jackie, her family, and their friends go on many adventures involving wild animals, poachers, and more. But when Jackie's father is recalled to England, Jackie must leave her life in Africa behind. However, before she can go, Jackie, Murphy, and Tembo, a friend of Jackie's father, go on one last adventure: they must cross the dangerous savannah to escape the poachers and corrupt police officers chasing them. Along the way, Jackie teaches the now domesticated Murphy to survive in the wild, so that, before she leaves, she can release him in his natural habitat.
Thirteen-year-old Jackie lives a happy and unusual life with her family in 1964 Kenya, surrounded by exotic creatures, good friends and sunshine. Her brother Andrew and father Arthur spend their time in the bush observing wildlife, but poachers make their lives dangerous – not to mention the occasional charging rhino. When the men witness the death of a mother bush baby, they decide to save its orphaned child, and Jackie finds herself a new companion. What adventures await Jackie and her new friend Murphy?
