At ages 8 and 7, co-authors Abbey and Aiden Lemons met “Pete” and Dr. Birute Galdikas (the lady in the big floppy hat) at the Orangutan Foundation International Care Center in Indonesian Borneo. There, they witnessed first hand the plight of orangutans.
They began to understand how palm oil products are causing the destruction of tropical rainforests throughout the world and the natural habitats of animals like orangutans.
Now that Abbey and Aiden are both in middle school, they wanted to share what they learned. So they wrote this book. Please pass it on to your friends!
