A little girl discovers a naughty orangutan causing chaos in her house. She orders it out, telling it to go away. But the orangutan has a story to tell- of how its home is being destroyed by humans for humans. Horrified by what she hears, the little girl takes action and in doing so, tells the reader how to protest as well.
Beautifully illustrated, ‘There’s a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom’ is a real call to arms, encouraging people to take direct action to save the orangutans and their habitat. This highly emotive subject is carefully handled, yet clearly states the issues faced by these majestic creatures. The illustrations are powerful, emphasising the message of the text.
Ideas for helping orangutans and top tips on how to write a campaign letter are included at the end of the book so that action is possible for those inspired by the story. It is a brilliant book- emotive and educational- the perfect mix.
Perfect for reading and enjoying, for promoting discussions or for getting involved in environmental action, this is wonderful book for schools and libraries. Just lovely!
