Suryia is not your average orangutan. In the first book about him, Suryia and Roscoe, Suryia found an unusual best friend: a dog named Roscoe. Now Suryia jumps into an unusual new hobby: swimming! Orangutans don’t swim; it doesn’t come naturally to them. But Suryia shows that adventures await those who are willing to try something new. Set on a preserve for endangered animals, The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.), here is another true tale of an original orangutan—the first ever known to swim!
