My Thoughts: Gus is a baby orangutan who is just learning how to live in the jungle. While following his mother, he gets distracted from the trail and meets a young girl named Maya. Maya and Gus become quick friends. Then Gus's family get captured by poachers, and an angel named Gabriella asks Maya to help Gus save his family.

Cover and artwork throughout the book is gorgeous--very bright and colorful. The story was original and refreshing.

About the Author: Jeanne McNaney has written one other book, The Legend of Honey Hollow. She has no website that I know of.
