Patrick McDonnell-beloved, bestselling author-artist and creator of the Mutts syndicated comic strip-shares the inspiring story of young Jane Goodall and her dream to help and protect animals.

In his characteristic heartwarming style, Patrick McDonnell tells the story of the young Jane Goodall and her special childhood toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. As the young Jane observes the natural world around her with wonder, she dreams of "a life living with and helping all animals," until one day she finds that her dream has come true.

One of the world's most inspiring women, Dr. Jane Goodall is a renowned humanitarian, conservationist, animal activist, environmentalist, and United Nations Messenger of Peace. In 1977 she founded the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), a global nonprofit organization that empowers people to make a difference for all living things.

With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall's autobiography, McDonnell makes this very true story accessible for the very young--and young at heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! This is a great kids book! I originally purchased it to read it to my kindergarten class but I just fell in love with the story. The artwork is great and also gives a brief bio about Jane Goodall at the back to show children that it is a true story.

Editorial Reviews

"McDonnell's concentration on [Goodall's] childhood fantasies carries a strong message to readers that their own dreams--even the wildly improbable ones--may be realizable, too."-Publishers Weekly
