Me … Jane in Bookstores Near You!

Discover the enchanting life of a young Jane Goodall in Patrick McDonnell’s newest children’s book, Me … Jane. Using simple prose and imaginative illustrations, the award-winning author and creator of the MUTTS comic strip tells the story of a young Jane and how she eventually fulfilled her childhood dream of living among the chimpanzees in Africa. Concluding with a brief message from the real-life Jane, this magical story is sure to not only inspire, but to tug at a few heart strings as well.

In honor of the book’s release, Patrick created a special comic strip that will appear in this Sunday’s newspapers, so be sure to look for it. This week, Patrick and Jane will also be doing media interviews in conjunction with the book’s launch, and Patrick will be at a number of bookstore events in the New York-New Jersey area during the month of April (see schedule below).
