The Ear, the Eye and the Arm by Nancy Farmer

ear eye armSuper sensory detectives Eye, Ear and Arm (yep, you guessed it, one guy has sensitive hearing, one has fantastic sight and one has super long arms, all the result of a nuclear power accident.) are on the trail of three runaways in the Zimbabwe of 2194. But this is no regular assignment. Because these three kids are also the children of General Matiska, military genius of Zimbabwe. Always one step behind the quarry, these three detectives are anything but bumbling, but can they hope to match wits with the She-Elephant and the notorious Blue Monkey who are out to sacrifice the souls of the royal siblings? Action abounds in this technological tale that weaves futuristic fun with traditional folklore.

  3. I looove this book. It was really good, and even a little funny. I thought it was so interesting to read about how Africa was in tha future, because you never actually think of Africa being modernized, and how things like “nuclear waste” affects things until the future.
