Mambi is a shy little monkey who adores her older jungle friends. If only she could be more like Koko the crow or Tonga the turtle! Then one day, a terrifying danger befalls the forest. Can Mambi overcome all her fears and save her friends?
Beautifully told, with charming artwork, Mambi and the Forest Fire is a spirited, heart-warming adventure about discovering your own strengths and celebrating the unique gifts that make every child special.
