Are the orangutans of Mukada falling sick because there are just too many of them? Something doesn't sound right about the park warden's explanation, and eleven-and-a-half-year-old Romy discovers she has been given mysterious powers to work out why. An encounter with a prank-loving family of apes leads her to realise that she alone can help break a curse that has brought suffering to generations of orangutans.
