“Yes, there are other picture book biographies about Jane Goodall and her life's work with the primates, but none are as sweet, lovely, and perfectly put together as this one. McDonnell, the author and illustrator or the Mutts cartoons and numerous other books for children, combines his distinct illustration style with childhood drawings and sketches from Goodall herself to create a reading experience for children that mimics the methodology of the world-famous primatologist: Explore, discover, and observe. Me...Jane is a joy to read and is sure to satisfy even the most inquisitive of readers.”

Description

The author of the Mutts comic strip and several best-selling children's books, Patrick McDonnell has been hailed as the next Charles Schulz. In his characteristic heartwarming style, McDonnell tells the story of the young Jane Goodall and her special childhood toy chimpanzee, Jubilee. With anecdotes from Goodall's autobiography, McDonnell makes this true story accessible for the very young-and young at heart. "Children will appreciate McDonnell's original format and take heart that interests logged in their own diaries might turn into lifelong passions."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review
