"This remarkable picture book is one of the few that speaks, in a meaningful way, to all ages." (Booklist, starred review )
"McDonnell's skill as a cartoonist enables him to express Goodall's joy, wonder and satisfaction with a simple stroke of the pen." (New York Times )
A big congratulations to author Patrick McDonnell and his publisher Little Brown & Company Books for Young Readers, whose delightful tale Me... Jane has been awarded a Coldecott Honor (given to the artist of the most distinguished American picture books), and has also been chosen as Booklist Magazine’s TOP OF THE LIST, for the single best book of the year in picture books! This gorgeous picture book tells the story of Jane Goodall and the special relationship she forms as a small child with a stuffed 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!
