What’s most refreshing is the natural and imaginative engagement the young orangutan has in his meditation and respect for his body-something many adults strive to attain. It’s no surprise that Andrew Daddo is becoming more and more renowned for his younger children’s stories… [Emma Quay’s] illustrations are original, beautifully coloured and perfectly complement the dialogue.
