Book by Patrick McDonnell & Aaron Posner. Music & Lyrics by Andy Mitton.
Patrick O’Donnell’s gorgeous children’s book celebrates the remarkable and ordinary childhood of the inimitable Jane Goodall. We were honored to share her message, and inspire young people with a respect for the natural world in a playful, highly inventive new musical for all audiences.
“An ode to animals that avoids preachiness while encouraging respect for and curiosity about them.”
