Summary

Discovering an orphaned tiger cub at the bottom of the big old rambutan tree, an intelligent and gentle orangutan, named Ginger, rescues him and brings him up as her own child, despite the warnings from the other orangutans about tigers being their natural enemy, and that Ginger would one day become the tiger’s dinner. Ginger teaches the tiger cub all she knows about the world, and how to live like an orangutan. The tiger grows up on a diet of leaves, fruit, honey, insects and bird’s eggs, but he hungers for something more satisfying to eat. When the tiger’s instinct for hunting gradually appears and his appetite for fresh meat becomes too overpowering, the two friends realise that they have to part company, but their deep bond of friendship remains strong and as the years pass by they never forget about each other. When human encroachment threatens the rainforest with fire and Ginger’s life is in danger, a trusted old friend comes to her rescue. A sensitive story which reveals the plight of orangutans and other wildlife as they fight for survival in their ever-diminishing rainforest habitat, which is directly due to the activities of human development and the need for land to grow palm and other crops.

With 100 percent of proceeded being donated to Orangutan Outreach comes a tale of hope as the strong bonds of friendship are showcased through the struggles to survive in the threatened Sumatran rainforest.
