Description

After chasing a butterfly in her jungle home, Gibby suddenly finds herself very far from her family and lost. With courage and teamwork, Gibby meets new friends who help her overcome obstacles as they guide her back home to the Frilly-Fig Tree. Gibby's Great Adventures series introduces kids to the wonderful jungle world of gibbons using cartoon versions of REAL animals and nature to teach kids important lessons about curiosity, problem-solving, resilience, self-confidence, teamwork, empathy, and integrity - all while rocking and rhyming in the heart of the jungles of Asia. Every character in the Gibby's Great Adventures series has a real-life cousin in the wild, fostering valuable connections for kids with nature, conservation, and the importance of wild animals through storytelling.

Author Biography

Growing up in Canada, Jackie was interested in animals and nature at a young age. But it wasn't until a fateful trip to Thailand in grad school that her true calling and passion for people, primates, and conservation began to flourish. Armed with some research equipment, a video camera, and a solid pair of hiking boots, Jackie left Canada knowing only one thing for sure: living alone on the other side of the world would not be a 'walk in the park'. Relying on the kindness of strangers, she needed to learn the local language and make friends fast in order to survive life in the jungle. It was a task that put her mental ingenuity and strength to the ultimate test - leading her to discover a lot about the endangered animals she studies, but even more about the intrinsic value of life on earth and what it means to be human. Now with over a decade of experience in teaching and primate research, Jackie is one of the few dedicated gibbon specialists in the world and founder of Prime Earth, sharing her story, knowledge, and love for all of life on earth to empower others and help create a more compassionate world. Josh Hdrlick is a true artist and humanitarian at heart. A former graphic designer turned occularist, Josh uses his talents to create stunning life-like prosthetic eyeballs for people who have lost an eye or eyes due to trauma or illness. Since 2012, Josh has worked with Jackie and Prime Earth, joining Jackie on expeditions to the jungles of Thailand to monitor and film white-handed gibbons in the wild.
