To the dismay of Jane, Jack has inherited his father’s love for the jungle. When an Africa exhibit comes to visit London and Akut mysteriously shows up along with it, Tar-Zaan can no longer hide his secret. Jack is kidnapped and with the help of his new friend Meriem he may be able to find his parents again. But Alexis may have other plans… Where will Jack’s trials and tribulations take him?
