Published: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers - April 5th, 2011

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

In his characteristic heartwarming style, 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.
