Life in his desert village had become unbearable for this poor orphan boy who had magic powers which enabled him to speak to the wild animals. Treated with suspicion by the villagers and seen as rather odd, he decides to set out and seek a new life.

What follows is a chance meeting with a camel from which a friendship is formed and they go on together. Discover a new home for both of them in an oasis where they are made very welcome. What follows involves hard work and friendship not only with the villagers but other camels as well. Camel trains arrive regularly and the orphan boy who had been given a name eventually befriends the senior camel who leads the camel train and adventure follows which requires a rescue but will it be successful? You will have to read the story to find out.

Following a varied and interesting working life and only ever having written light-hearted poetry, Tim Kenyon decided that the next step was to write a book for young children which also had an educational aspect to it. The Orphan Boy and the Camel is his first book, and if of interest, other books with the same semi-educational format may follow. He believes reading and learning at the same time is beneficial, especially to the young reader.
