Despite the warnings from her friends, an orangutan named Ginger, rears an orphaned tiger cub as her own. When the growing tiger’s natural instincts begin to show, the two have to part ways. With all net proceeds of this book being donated to Orangutan Outreach, this gentle story of friendship and the struggle to survive in the threatened Sumatran rainforest, will help children understand environmental impacts and offers hope for the future of the quickly diminishing wild Orangutan population.
This book has been produced to support the work of Orangutan Outreach.
