Overview

Suryia Swims!: The True Story of How an Orangutan Learned to Swim by Bhagavan Antle, Barry Bland

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!
