An illustrated depiction of a real-life story that celebrates the eternal, life-affirming bond between animals and humans


Everyone loves Dr. White, a furry practitioner with four paws, a wagging tail, and an unorthodox bedside manner who day by day works his magic on very ill children at the hospital. Although his treatment is unconventional, it has a great success rate. But one day the health inspector arrives and bans Dr. White from the hospital. Who could have predicted the terrible coincidence that ends up bringing Dr. White back to the patients who love him? Based on a true story from a London hospital, Jane Goodall’s enchanting book reminds readers of all ages of the healing power of love.
