Fantastic new picture book alert!

Patrick McDonnell (of Mutts fame) has produced yet another fantastic picture book, but this one is the best yet. It tells the story of Jane Goodall as a child: her toy chimpanzee Jubilee, her make-believe adventures, and her dreams of growing up to work with and help all kinds of animals. Aside from McDonnell's drawings, there are also photos of Jane, drawings and puzzles she made as a child, and a sketch of her camp she made when she was grown up.

This book is not mushy in the least, but is so touching that it made me tear up a little. You MUST read this book!
