There once was an Orangutan, and that Orangutan had something to say! Before we find out what wise words the Orangutan has for us, we meet a host of amazing animals that need our help to survive in a dangerous, perilous world – will you help the animals live to tell the tale?

Sara Saunders has crafted a fun, fanciful story, and filled it with creatures big and small – some we see every day, others are steeped in mystery. With a strong focus on conservation, Sara has created a tale that will help children see their place in the fight to keep the animals of the world safe.

Perfect for family story time or classroom work on conservation, There once was an Orangutan is a wonderful resource, and a great way to teach kids that what they do can impact even the tiniest of lives around them.
