Riley and family visit the rain forests of Borneo to learn how figs, fig wasps and orangutans all rely on each other for survival. Riley spots sun bears, proboscis monkeys, flying snakes, and more while coming to the rescue of an orphaned orangutan! A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.

“Most kids will finish this book eager to read another, learn more about the orangutans and other wild animals, and dream of their own adventures just like Riley’s.” – ForeWord Magazine

“A wonderful, scientific-based children’s book…[this] cutting-edge series on contemporary topics in environmental education is a surefire winner.” – Susan Farrington, The Sanford Herald
