About the book:
When a little girl discovers a mischievous orangutan on the loose in her bedroom, she can’t understand why it keeps shouting OOO! at her shampoo and her chocolate. But when Rang-tan explains that there are humans running wild in her rainforest, burning down trees so they can grow palm oil to put in products, the little girl knows what she has to do: help save the orangutans!
Published in collaboration with Greenpeace and based on their film that became a viral sensation, There’s a Rang-tan in My Bedroom includes
information about orangutans and palm oil plus exciting ideas about how young readers can make a difference.
