Book 3 of the Banna and Bree series. Banna and Bree, brave wildlife warriors, are blown to a rainforest reserve in Borneo. As a fire rages through the rainforest habitat in Borneo, Banna and Bree’s friend Remi, a baby orangutan, is lost and alone, unable to find her mother through the smoke and destruction of the raging fire. In a desperate attempt to save her, Banna and Bree risk their own lives, not only to save Remi, but the other baby orangutans trapped in cages ready to be sold to the illegal pet trade.


‘Banna and Bree Blown to Borneo,’ is a story set in a rainforest reserve in Borneo. Banna and Bree, two young baboons from the Okavango Delta in Botswana, visit this paradise and witness first hand how palm oil plantation owners dangerously encroach on the last remnants of primary rainforest areas, putting the lives of endangered animals at risk. When a fire in the rainforest threatens a lost orangutan baby, the animals of the forest unite, implement strategies and work together when it becomes a matter of her survival. Banna and Bree together with the proboscis monkeys, the orangutans and pigmy elephants risk their own lives to save and bring home the missing baby to her mother. Other baby orangutans are also caught in the crossfire and need to be rescued before they are sold in the illegal pet trade. Rupsa, the old male orang-utan leads the charge to save the lives of the baby orangutans locked up in cages. ‘Banna and Bree Blown to Borneo,’ highlights environmental issues such as deforestation, preservation of endangered animals and human impact on animal habitats at a level that young children can relate to. Banna and Bree are conservation and wildlife warriors that will appeal to young readers who care about endangered animals and protecting our planet. Banna and Bree is a light hearted, family friendly book that explores the issue of deforestation in a way that children understand.
