About the Books

about the bookTears In The Jungle: A Children’s Adventure to Save the Orangutan is a beautifully crafted children’s book recognised in Australia as a valuable teaching resource for Primary, Secondary and even in Universities as it crosses so many topics.

Now with the second book, “Tears In The Jungle: Fight For Survival” Daniel and William take their readers on a new journey using QR Codes to show video of their latest adventure into the wilds of Borneo.

Tears In The Jungle - Fun Fact

Tears In The Jungle is a fun and educational way for children to learn about the environment and understand how they can make a difference to their world.  Children will be inspired at Daniel and William’s passion to save the orangutans and will love finding the ‘Fun Facts’ throughout the book marked with our special orangutan friend…


The double entendre of the title aptly describes what is happening to these wonderful creatures and the feelings shared by the world over, that is;

Tear: to cry (orangutans),    Tear: to become torn (their habitat)

This elegant book tells the real life story of two courageous brothers and their quest to save the orangutan from extinction.  Faced with their own challenges (Daniel having cerebral palsy) these brothers tell their story of their trek through the jungles of Borneo to see the orangutan in the wild (twice via both books).

The story follows their amazing encounters with orangutans at feeding stations, with beautiful babies at care centres as well as containing many facts and figures of what is one of our closest living relatives.  You will also stare into the eyes of a large male orangutan and learn of his amazing power and strength with the ‘Fun Facts’ scattered throughout the book.

Children will also learn of the loving and peaceful nature of these critically endangered animals and how they share 97% of our DNA.



Tears In The Jungle foreword written by Dick Smith…my exploits are nothing compared to the courage shown by Daniel Clarke and his younger brother William.  Their spirit of adventure and determination to help others is a wonderful example to all of us.

Dick Smith, Australian Entrepreneur and Adventurer



Tears In The Jungle inspires children of all ages to pick up a book and embrace a love of learning.  It marries close with our own philosophy of, “We learn to read, then we read to learn”.
