Deep inside the Palombian jungle, a rickety old boat sails up a sluggish river. On board is one of the world's most famous hunters, and he's vowed to be the first to capture a Marsupilami. But that's no easy prey. The long-tailed creature is smart - much smarter than any human believes. And an alliance with the local natives isn't going to be much help: they hate the Marsupilami who keeps outwitting them, and they're desperate to find out what he tastes like...
