The baby orangutans at the jungle school are about to be let loose in their new classroom. To combat nerves, some have brought an object to calm them down: security blankets.

Alba has recovered from a typhoid scare, but when she's removed from isolation, will the other orangutans welcome her back? What's worse, a forest school youngster is struck by malaria. Can the staff stop this deadly disease from sweeping through the school?
