‘Pongo’ is a debut book by the talented illustrator Jesse Hodgson. The eponymous hero finds his way from the rainforest floor to the canopy on his search for the bright orange sun. On his way to the canopy he encounters different aspects of jungle life, all diverting his attention from the real sun – from a curled up orange snake, to an orange honey-soaked bee hive – each distraction a funny surprise for a young reader.
