"Mungai and the Goa Constrictor" by Amelia Curzon

Amazon Synopsis:
Wouldn't it be perfect to get everything you want in life without lifting a single finger or claw! Mungai thinks it would!

Mungai, a plausible and resourceful creature of indeterminate origin, and with a penchant for easy living, finds a soul mate in Goa; a lisping, greedy, self-serving  Boa Constrictor. Having explained to her "the usefulness of the lesser species" and his highly profitable master plan to find ways of passing through life without too much cost to himself, as little effort as possible, and at the expense of others not as strong-minded or as clever as he is, Mungai seduces Goa into joining him in his venture. Captivated by Mungai's mind-set, Goa conspires with him to go in search of innocents to implement these designs.

Set in a rainforest of an unspecified continent, Mungai and the Goa Constrictor is a tale littered with colourful and enjoyable characters, conspiracies and unlikely friendships between the various species of the animal kingdom. Told through the eyes of animals the narrative explores the predatory world of deception and greed.
It is an allegorical tale filled with action, adventure, humour, sadness, deceit, friendship and tolerance, and carries an important missive: Beware of predators in the guise of friends.
